EXTRACT FROM THE LATE MR. W. E. GLADSTONE'S 
SPEECH AT NOTTINGHAM. 

The Times of September 28th, 1877. 

Let me point to another case with which I am personally 
acquainted, to show you that wherever primary education is 
loved, the higher education must be loved and taught also. 
I speak of the country of Wales, in which I have the happiness 
to spend a large portion of my time ; and there is no part of 
the population of the country — and I say it freely and boldly 
in your hearing — there are few parts which can compete with 
Wales, and there is no part which can exceed it, from one end 
of the island to the other, in the earnest, ardent, and, I may 
say, passionate love for instruction. They are a religious 
people, and a people deeply enamoured of knowledge, and 
what they have done has been done with very little assistance. 
With no assistance at all from any public fund of any kind, 
they have, within the last five or six years, founded a large 
and important College at Aberystwyth. Is it possible for you 
to have a stronger proof that the existence of a love for primary 
education does lead on, and must lead on, to every great effort 
for the establishment of higher education ? 



FORM OF BEQUEST. 



I give and bequeath to the Treasurers, for the time 
being, of the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth, 
the sum of [Free of Legacy Duty] for 

the purposes of the said College, out oif such part only of 
my personal estate as may lawfully be bequeathed for 
charitable purposes, and preferable to all payments 
thereout; for which Legacy the receipt of the Treasurers, 
for the time being, of the said College shall be a sufficient 
discharge to my Executors. 



FORM OF BEQUEST OF RESIDUE, OR SHARE 
OF RESIDUE. 

I give and bequeath all (or if so intended one equal 
share of) the residue of such part of my personal estate as 
I may lawfully bequeath for charitable purposes unto the 
Treasurers, for the time being, of the University College 
of Wales, Aberystwyth, for the purposes of the said 
College, and I direct that the receipt of such Treasurers 
shall be a sufficient discharge for the same.

GREEK. 

Mr. E. D. T. Jenkins. 

The number of students taking Greek in 1924-25 was much the same 
as in the preceding session : — 

Elementary . . . . . . 11 

Intermediate . . . . . . 9 

Subsidiary . . . . . .. . . 6 

Final . . 2 

Honours (1st year) . . . . 1 

Graduate . , . . . . . . 1 

Three members of the Elementary Class had withdrawn by the middle 
of the second term, some of the others, owing to the pressure of other 
subjects, were unable to devote the proper amount of time required 
for the study of a new language, but a few made considerable progress. 

The Intermediate Class was not a strong one but contained some hard 
workers. One candidate withdrew before the Examination, and of 
those that actually sat, five were successful. Mr. Gledhill, Mr. T. Glyn 
Thomas and Mr. H. O. Jones made distinct progress during the year. 

At the Subsidiary Stage Miss Mabel M. Rees and Mr. Brendan Osborne 
showed at times considerable promise, though neither did very well in the 
Examination. All the candidates, however, were successful, with the 
exception of one, a student taking the course in his first year, who was 
awarded an Intermediate. 

Two students read for Final, and one of them, Mr. Glyn Parry Jones, 
passed. 

There has been a marked tendency on the part of students to neglect 
Set Books and History. This sometimes has led to disastrous results 
in examinations, but that is not its worst aspect. It must be realised 
that in the last resort progress will depend on a careful and accurate 
study of the Greek text ; without this no appreciation of the language 
and nothing worthy of the name of scholarship is even possible. 

The first year Honours student, Mr. E. S. Loveday, has been working 
hard under difficulties ; his progress therefore has not been as great in 
some respects as I had been led to expect, but he is keen on the Classics 
and on Greek in particular, and this should stand him in good stead. 

Mr. J. Morys Williams, B.A., who took First Class Honours in 1924, 
has been studying Aristotle's treatment of social problems, and hopes 
to embody the results in a thesis to be presented for the M.A. degree in 
the near future. 

I desire again to express my gratitude to Professor Rose and Miss 
Woodward, also to Mr. P. K. Baillie Reynolds, who was appointed Lecturer 
in Ancient History in July, 1924, for much valued help given me in this 
Department. 

Mention should be made of Professor Rose's book on " The Roman 
Questions of Plutarch," published by the Oxford Press early in the 
session. . This work has been warmly welcomed by scholars both in this 
country and abroad as a valuable contribution to the study of Greek 
and Roman Religion. 

The Head of the Department, as Secretary of the Aberystwyth Com- 
mittee, along with Welsh Scholars, is helping in the production of the new 
Welsh version of the Greek Testament. The work proceeds slowly ; the 
Epistle of St. James and the Epistle to the Galations have already 
been published, and Corinthians I. should be forthcoming next session. 

On behalf of the College and of the Department, I wish to offer our 
most sincere thanks to Mr. J. B. Willans, of Dolforgan, Kerry, for a gift 
of books and of £20 for the purchase of books. At a time when Library 
grants are lower than they have been, these gifts are doubly welcome.

This year has witnessed another change in the Classical Staff. The 
position of Lecturer in Ancient History has been filled by the election 
of Mr. P. K. Baillie Reynolds, who has performed his duties admirably 
in every way, and whose stay with us will, it is hoped, be a long one. 
I would draw attention to the already considerable bulk of his printed 
contributions to the advancement of archaeological learning, which will 
in all likelihood be greatly increased within the next few years ; and 
also to his interest in, and first-hand acquaintance with, the study of 
Roman Britain, particularly Wales. As regards the other members of 
the department, Prof. Bensly's activities were unfortunately hampered 
by a long illness, but it is matter for gratification that he is now fully 
recovered and continuing his valuable researches ; I need hardly speak 
of Miss Woodward's indefatigable zeal both as a teacher and in helping 
with the organisation of the department, or of the ever welcome services 
of Mr. Pope. 

Co-operation with other departments continues, and this year has not 
been confined to the giving of lectures under their auspices. Prof. 
Bensly and I have had the pleasure of association with Mr. Jane in the 
preparation of a considerable historical work which it is hoped will be 
ready by the end of the year, and I have also shared with Prof. Gwynn 
Jones in compiling a little volume of selections from Greek and Latin 
poetry, with Welsh translations from his pen. Next year several new 
courses, designed to meet the needs of other departments, are contem- 
plated, and will be reported upon when they have been tried. It is 
fortunate that I can count on the unfailing willingness of my colleagues 
to undertake the extra work which will be nec ssary in order thus to 
increase the utility of the department to the College in general. 

The good quality of the freshman class of 1923-24 was mentioned last j 
year ; it is further illustrated in the results of this session's Ordinary I 
and Final examinations. The lists show a„ low percentage of failures ; 
they do not, however, indicate how good much of the work of those who 
passed was. The present freshman class is weaker, so far as Latin is 
concerned, but worked well on the whole, and made a better showing 
than I had at first been inclined to look for. The small Honours class 
is to be at least doubled in the next session ; its present members have 
made good progress. The graduate studenc, Mr. J. Mathias, who last 
year was working under the guidance of the department, has this year i 
presented a thesis which deservedly won him his M.A. degree. 



45

In addition to the above, several lectures have been delivered to 
various societies, local and other. Two items in the above list represent 
lectures of last session, already referred to in last year's report. 

ENGLISH. 

Professor J. W. H. Atkins. 

The session that has just closed has been a strenuous one. The large 
number of students who take English as one of their Degree subjects 
makes the work of the department excessively heavy. And as we still 
suffer from inadequate staffing, more especially in connection with the 
essay work where the need is most urgent, it is hoped that the claims of 
the department in this respect may be met in the near future, for without 
this further assistance our work must continue to be seriously hampered. 

Mr. Odon Schram, M.A., at present University Fellow, and now 
resident at Cambridge, has completed his first year's work on " Place- 
Names of Norfolk." He is working in close conjunction with the English 
Place-Name Society, and has submitted a highly satisfactory report 
on his researches up to date. 

At the University Examination in June, Miss Nina Molly Edwards 
and Mr. T. Job were both awarded the degree of M.A., the former for a 
dissertation entitled " Contemporary Lyrical Poetry," the latter for one 
entitled " Satire in English Nineteenth Century Verse." 

The Honours Class this year was of the highest quality, perhaps the 
most interesting class it has been my privilege to teach. It is therefore 
not surprising that the examination results were of a highly satisfactory 
kind. Five students were placed in the First Class : Miss Margaret 
Enid Griffiths, Miss Annie Maud Jones, Miss Gladys M. Thomas, Mr. 
B. F. Michael, and Mr. David G. Williams. Nine students obtained 
Second Classes, five being placed in Class II, Division I, and four in 
Class II, Division II : while the remaining four students were placed in 
Class III. I might perhaps add that the work of Miss Annie Maud Jones 
was of outstanding merit, while Miss Margaret E. Griffiths had previously 
obtained First Class Honours in Welsh. 



46 



Of the First Year Honours students (22 in number) all succeeded in 
completing a satisfactory year's work. The plan of introducing such 
students to a substantial part of the Honours work during their first year 
has been fully justified. It gives them more time for general reading 
and enables them to get a sounder grasp of the work as a whole. 

At the Third Year or Final stage, out of 39 candidates, 30 were 
successful in completing the course. At the Second Year (Subsidiary) 
stage, out of 55 candidates, 42 passed the College Examination : while 
at the First Year (Intermediate) stage, out of 79 candidates, 55 passed, 
and 2 candidates passed the examination qualifying for the Diploma in 
Music. Nineteen Intermediate students presented themselves for the 
Further Test and 14 were successful, thus qualifying for entrance to 
Honours work at a later stage. 

Throughout the session assistance of a most helpful kind has been 
received from other departments, and I gladly take this opportunity of 
expressing my gratitude. Professor Barbier, Mr. David Evans, and Mr. 
Sydney Herbert, in particular, have given special lectures at various 
times to Honours students, and the efforts of all alike were highly appre- 
ciated. 

I wish also to express my indebtedness to Miss Winstanley and Mr. 
Garmonsway for their unfailing devotion and valuable help during the 
session. The work of Miss Winstanley is well known to all former 
students : Mr. Garmonsway, I might perhaps add, is making a special 
study of Old Norse literature and has succeeded in interesting his students 
very keenly in that branch of the work. 

The number of students taking English Courses this session (215 in all) 
was as follows : —

First Year (T.T.C.) 2 

Second Year (Subsidiary) . . . . . . 55

WELSH LITERATURE. 

Professor T. Gwynn Jones. 

Sessional work was successfully carried out, in spite of lack of accom- 
modation necessitating the conducting of classes mostly in a room shared 
for private purposes with the head of the Language Department. Much 
interest was shown in the study of special subjects, and the work done 
was most encouraging. Five students attended a class in Modern Irish, 
arranged by request, and the progress made proved highly satisfactory. 
During the session, some of the chief literary prizes at the College and 
the Intercollegiate Eisteddfodau were awarded, with distinction, to Mr. L. 
Haydn Lewis and Mr. J. Iorwerth Williams, present and former students 
of the department.

The work of the department as a whole has been quite satisfactory. 

Intermediate Stage. — The class was slightly smaller than last year's. 
The work done by the students at this stage was uniformly good, and 
two or three students whose mother-tongue is not Welsh, did remarkably 
well considering their handicap. The proportion of failures in the June 
examination was smaller this year than it was last year. Only one 
student of the six that took the Further Test succeeded in reaching 
the Pass standard, although not one of the others was a hopeless failure. 

Subsidiary Stage. — The class at this stage was not very large, but it 
contained some exceptionally promising students. Three members of 
the class did very creditable work, — Miss Beti Lloyd Roberts, Mr. Thomas 
Gwynn Jones (both first year students) and Mr. Thomas Hevin Williams. 

Final Stage. — This class included six First Year Honours students, 
who were required to follow the course in addition to their Honours work. 
Two or three members of the class were unable to sit the examination in 
June. Three students, Miss May Evans, Miss Annie Price, and Mr. 
Evan D. Jones (Llangeitho), whose performance last year was so promising, 
again this year did distinctly good work during the session and in the 
June examination. The three are Honours students. 

Honours Stage. — The number in this class was the smallest for some 
years. The work done by them was uniformly good. Mr. Matthew 
Jones Roberts gave promise of a" good class in the Sessional Examination, 
but although in many respects he was a first class student, he was placed 
in the First Division of the Second Class. Miss Mary Thomas was placed 
in the Second Division of the Second Class. 

Three Honours students have received College Travelling Scholarships 
to enable them to visit Brittany during the summer vacation. 

Mr. Griffiths Roberts Jones, B.A., B.D., a former student of the 
department, was awarded the Degree of M.A. in June. Mr. W. Ambrose 
Bebb, M.A., another former student, has secured an appointment on 
the staff of the North Wales Training College, Bangor. 

During the second term, Th. Chotzen, a pupil of Professor Van Hamel, 
of the University of Utrecht, Holland, joined the Welsh classes. He 
was preparing a thesis for a Doctorate of that University. 

It gives me very great pleasure again this year to express my deepest 
gratitude to Professor Gwynn Jones for the invaluable help which he gave 
the department during the session. As in previous sessions, he delivered 
series of lectures to classes at all stages. 



48 



FRENCH. 

Professor J. L. A. Barrier. 

The work was conducted on the lines established some years ago : the 
tutorial system was used as much as the limited staff of the department 
made it possible ; the experiment of substituting, for weekly exercises 
in translation into French, a series of French essays connected with the 
study of literature and set books was continued, at the Subsidiary, 
Final and Honours stages, with good results. 

I have to point out again that many young men and women come 
to College ill-prepared to pursue a degree course ; the keenness and 
industry shown by students could not, this year again, in many cases, 
make up for inadequate grounding in the subject. , 

Four students were presented for Honours ; they were all successful 
at the University degree examination, one obtaining a First Class, two 
being placed in the First Division of the Second Class, and one in the 
Third Class. 

Two former students of the College qualified for the degree of M.A. : 
Miss Ethel Jones's dissertation on " French Travellers in England from 
1820 to 1830 " was a conscientious and interesting piece of work, and 
Mr. John David Jones's dissertation on " Sir Gawain and the magic sword: 
a further contribution to the study of the legend of Sir Gawain and 
Arthurian romance," was a clear and intelligent enquiry into some 
obscure problems connected with Arthurian legends, well informed, and 
showing keen critical judgment. 

Four students were granted travelling scholarships at the end of last 
session ; three spent a full month in France during the summer, 1924, 
with great profit ; they did well at the Honours examination last June, 
and all obtained easily the Certificate of Oral Proficiency ; the fourth, 
Mr. Gareth R. V. Jones, spent the whole of the session at the University 
of Strasbourg, studying French and German, and will come back here 
next October to pursue the second year of his Honours course in French. 
Eight students, most of them having pursued the first year of the Honours 
course in French this session, were awarded travelling scholarships, 
and arrangements have been made for their stay abroad this summer. 
I should like to express again my deep gratitude to the generous donors 
whose liberality made it possible to institute these travelling scholarships : 
their benefit to individual students and to the French department 
generally, is invaluable. 

Dr. A. B. Thomas was with us again this session, after having studied 
for a full year the science of experimental phonetics in London and in 
Paris. His report on the lectures on phonetics delivered this session, 
and on the organisation and equipment of the laboratory of experimental 
phonetics is printed below. Dr. Thomas is devoting half his time 
to the teaching of phonetics which now form an integral part of the 
French syllabus. He has also started research on intonation. 

Miss E. M. Phillips continued her research on literary criticism in 
France in the XlXth century. An article by her on " Sainte-Beuve's 
visit to England in 1828 " will appear in the July number of the Modern 
Language Review, and another on " Sainte-Beuve and the English 
Pre-Romantics " in the next number of Aberystwyth Studies. A book 
is in preparation. 

Mr. Frank T. H. Fletcher, M.A. (Birmingham), Docteur de l'Universite 
de Nancy, was appointed for a year, last summer, Part-Time Assistant 
in the French department. A very able and promising scholar, and a 
good teacher, he was very successful with students, and I much regret 
that it was found impossible to retain his services by offering him a 
post of full Assistant Lecturer.

To him, as weli as to Dr. A. B. Thomas and Miss E. M. Phillips, I wish 
to express my gratitude for their unfailing devotion and valuable help 
during the session.

Three students were transferred from Intermediate to Subsidiary in 
the course of the session. 



Phonetics. 
Dr. A. B. Thomas. 

During the first two terms I delivered a course of twelve lectures on the 
Physiology and Acoustics of Speech, with illustrations from English, 
Welsh, French, and German. The course was followed by an average 
of twenty Honours students from the language departments, and three 
of my colleagues. 

I also delivered a series of three lectures on Elementary Phonetics 
to the Final students of the Normal Department. 

Practical work has been carried on under great disadvantages, especially 
lack of space. It was not until the second term that a suitable room 
was available. By the courtesy of Prof. Chappie I am allowed the use of 
this small room until it is required for the use of the Normal Department. 

I have demonstrated on my apparatus to several students and mem- 
bers of the staff, and have carried out preliminary experiments myself 
on intonation-recording. Next session I intend beginning a systematic 
study of intonation of the Welsh Language. 

At the beginning of the session, Dr. Somerfeldt, of Oslo, delivered 
a series of public lectures here on the Phonetics of the Welsh Dialect of 
Llanbrynmair district. He visited my laboratory and made use of the 
Kymograph. He expressed himself delighted with the apparatus, and has 
subsequently, with my permission, made use of the records in his 
researches. 

I wish to thank all members of the staff of the Department of Physics 
for their help ; and especially Mr. Sulston. With his expert advice and 
the assistance of Mr. David Owen, I was able to fit up my apparatus and 
equip my laboratory without outside labour. 

Further Practical work (apart from private research) will require a 
larger room and an annual grant.

GERMAN. 

Mr. David Evans. 

The work of the department during the past session was quite satis- 
factory. The number of students taking the courses is increasing, and 
particularly so in the Elementary Classes for Science and Art Students. 
Of the five classes for beginners, the class arranged for Chemistry students 
deserves special credit for its regular attendance and keen enthusiasm. 
These classes have already become a standing feature of the department, 
and it is a pleasure to find so many students desirous of obtaining a 
reading knowledge of the language in order to equip themselves for 
higher work in their own department, especially when no credit is given 
for this extra preparation in the actual degree examinations. 

The Intermediate Class had 27 students, of whom 15 were examination 
candidates and 10 were successful in the June examination ; four intend 
sitting the examination in September. The work was good throughout 
the session, but Miss Jane Evans, Mr. D. J. Phillips Richards and Mr. 
Eurfyl Jones deserve praise for their high standard of attainment. 
The Subsidiary Class consisted of four students, of which one student 
Miss Shelley, was promoted from the Intermediate Class for her excellent 
work. All four were successful. 

Of the two students in the Final Class, only Miss Chamberlain was 
successful in her examination. Miss Owen's work was weak, probably 
owing to the effects of her serious illness at the end of last session. 

The First Year's Honours Class of three have worked regularly and 
well, and promise good results for next session. 

Only one change was made in the courses during the year. The course 
on the history, development, institutions, &c, of Germany was given 
in German by Dr. Deissmann, and the students who attended benefited 
in knowledge as well as in conversational fluency and understanding of 
spoken German. 

Four students have been granted Travelling Scholarships to enable 
them to visit Germany during the Summer Vacation. Miss Mari Walters 
intends to study the economic conditions and social welfare work in 
the industrial areas of the North of France and West Germany. 

The assistance of Dr. Deissmann, who was appointed as lecturer 
for one session, proved most valuable to the department. It enabled 
the staff to devote more time to special work, and the students received 
more help in essay work, conversation, translation, and in modern 
German generally. 

His appointment as lecturer was a new departure and was fully 
justified ; Dr. R. Haferkorn, of Leipzig University, has been appointed 
to fill the post for the coming session. 

Finally, I wish to express my gratitude to Miss Hermia Rees for her 
invaluable help under very trying conditions, and to Dr. Deissmann for 
his help in many ways inside and outside the department.

HISTORY. 

Vice-Principal Edward Edwards. 

I am pleased to report that work of very considerable merit was done 
at every grade in the degree courses in the History Department during 
the Session 1924-25. 

In the various classes there are pupils of great promise, who, with 
application to their reading, should do exceedingly well at the higher 
stages. The percentage of passes was considerably higher than in 
previous years, and one is glad to find that there is a greater tendency 
in students to read standard works for themselves. 

In the Honours Class, Miss Joan Franklin secured an excellent First, 
whilst Miss M. M. Lewis obtained a really good Division One in the 
Second Class. 

In the examinations for higher degrees Mr. Ifan ab Owen Edwards 
was awarded the M.A. degree for a dissertation on " Local Government 
in the Principality of Wales, during the 16th and 17th Centuries, as illus- 
trated mainly by the extant data relating to the County of Merioneth," 
and the work was of such high merit that he shared in the Prince 
Llewelyn Memorial Prize. Moreover, Mr. Dan R. Jones, the Art Master 
at the College, completed a scheme of study for his M.A. degree and was 
awarded the M.A. degree for a dissertation on " The history of Welsh 
Domestic Art from the 16th Century, as exhibited in the native furniture, 
together with a study of its relation to the furniture of other parts of the 
British Isles and the Continent of Europe." 

The additional grant for library equipment will be a great boon for the 
History students, and I wish to call the serious attention of the Council 
to the fact that there are scarcely any research exhibitions available for 
students on the Arts side who wish to proceed to higher work on the 
completion of their course of study. 

COLONIAL HISTORY. 

Professor T. Stanley Roberts. 

Intermediate History. 

The work of this class was satisfactory, and there were fewer failures 
than in previous years. A number of the students showed excellent 
promise. The work of Mr. Edgar Arthur Jones, and of Mr. Percy 
Samuel was worthy of special mention. 

Honours and Final Colonial History. 
The Classes were small as in the previous year. There were no failures, 
but no student obtained a First Class in the Sessional Examination. 

PHILOSOPHY. 

Professor W. Jenkyn Jones. 

The work in this department in session 1924-25 was quite satisfactory 
on the whole. The percentage of failures in the Intermediate and 
Ordinary examinations was greater than usual, but the average quality 
of the work was higher at all stages. 

In pursuance of the terms of her fellowship Miss Valmai Evans, M.A., 
lectured in the second term on the History of Modern Epistemology to 
the Honours Class. Her lectures were helpful and much appreciated. 
In the third term she returned to Rome to continue her studies. We 
heard later with much satisfaction of her appointment as Instructor in 
Philosophy at Goucher College, Baltimore, U.S.A. We wish her much 
success in her new sphere. Dr. Dan Davies repeated his valuable services 
of former years by giving a short series of lectures on Kant's philosophy. 



52 



We have noted with great pleasure the recent successes of former students 
of the department. Mr. Maelgwyn Morris, who was a post-graduate 
student last session, has been awarded the M.A. degree, the subject of his 
thesis being "The implications of Immortality in the Moral Consciousness." 
Mr. J. Morys Williams won the Gladstone Memorial Prize for an excellent 
essay on " The relation between individual and social good in Greek 
Philosophy." The following students, who obtained Honours in Philo- 
sophy, have graduated in the University of Oxford with Second Class 
Honours in Theology : — Owen William Owen, J. Brechfa Davies, and 
Stephen Tudor. 

I also desire to congratulate Dr. Olive Wheeler, a distinguished former 
student of the department, upon her appointment as Professor of Educa- 
tion in Universit}^ College, Cardiff. 

The Honours Class. — Five students pursued the Honours course, and 
worked hard, intelligently, and with very good results. Gwilym James 
achieved the rare distinction of obtaining a First Class before the age of 
twenty. The three other candidates — Glyn Parry Jones, Tom Jones 
and E. P. Richards, were placed in the First Division of the Second Class. 
G. H. Williams decided to devote another year to the work. 

The Special Class. — This class included several students pursuing 
Honours courses in other departments, and did exceptionally good work. 
The preceding course, as revised, is in larger measure than before 
preparatory to the work of the Special course, and the alteration has led 
to a distinct improvement in the work at the higher stage. This year 
only two candidates out of seventeen were unsuccessful. The work of 
Hettie Hall, Violet Watson and Trefor Owen Rees was very promising. 

The Ordinary Class. — As in previous years this class consisted mainly 
of ministerial students, and of students who chose the course as sub- 
sidiary to the higher courses in English. Of the thirty students who 
took the course the majority showed good intellectual powers, and real 
interest in the subject. Five students failed in the examination more, 
it appeared to me, through want of industry than of ability. The best 
results were shown by Eluned P. Jones, Trefor T. Jones, Enid Lloyd, 
Mabel Rees and P. H. Williams. 

The Intermediate Class. — This class showed the same features as in 
previous years, except that the difference in ability and results between 
the members was somewhat more conspicuous. The work done in class 
exercises and in the examinations proved that the great majority pursued 
the course with understanding and profit. A lecture given to the class 
by Prof. Gwilym Owen on Sound was very illuminating and was greatly 
enjoyed. We hope that in future Prof. Owen will be willing to lecture 
to the Class, not only on Sound, but also on some other subjects which 
fall partly within the Department of Physics, and partly within that of 
Philosophy. 

The Departmental Library is being reorganised and catalogued. 
New books are being added and its future administration will be made 
more effective. I desire to acknowledge the thoughtful and able services 
of my colleague, Dr. L. A. Reid, and also the valuable assistance given to 
the department by Prof. Owen, Dr. G. H. Green, of the Department of 
Education, who delivered a most interesting and helpful series of lectures 
on Psychology to the Honours Class, Miss Valmai Evans, and Dr. Davies. 

Articles by Dr. Reid have appeared during the session in several 
Journals, including The Hibbert Journal and Mind. — Two articles have 
appeared in the Lienor by Dr. Dan Davies on Sir Henry Jones' views 
concerning Immortality. Miss Evans contributed to A berystwyth Studies, 
and Prof. Jenkyn Jones to the Welsh Geiriadur Beiblaidd.

Subsidiary Course. — The first year class numbered 47, of whom 3 
withdrew in the course of the session. The class proved itself earnest 
and hardworking. Of the 44 candidates who sat the examination 
35 succeeded in securing pass marks. The standard attained was very 
good, and several of the candidates showed marked aptitude and progress. 
Miss Jolliffe and Mr. J. C. R. Davies— both holders of State Scholarships — 
did excellent work, and Miss Hettie Hall, Mr. J. M. Jones, Mr. E. W. 
James, also proved exceedingly promising students ; all these should do 
well in the coming year. The weekly discussion class, conducted 
alternately by Mr. Rees and Mr. King, was well attended. During the 
summer term Mr. Rees delivered a short series of lectures on British 
Commercial Policy to meet the keen interest taken by the class in the 
problem of Imperial Preference and the attempt to discover new markets 
for British goods. 

Final Course. — The Final Class, comprising 17 students, was an 
exceedingly good one, but some of the stronger members failed in their 
University Examination through their neglect of the Economic history 
section of the course. Generally, however, the average standard of 
attainment was distinctly commendable. Special mention should be 
made of the work done by Miss Mari C. Walters, Miss H. Tyndall, Mr. 
Bernard Evans, Mr. D. E. J. Davies, Mr. Glanville Williams, and Mr. 
Mervyn Morgan. The discussion hours proved interesting and valuable. 
It is necessary here to make a suggestion which, if acted upon, would be 
a very great gain to students in Economics, namely, the urgent need 
of a fund to enable visits of observation to industrial establishments in 
North and South Wales. Two students pursued the Final Course in 
Comparative and International Politics with Mr. Sydney Herbert, who 
reports that both worked excellently, and satisfied the examiners without 
difficulty. 

Honours Course. — The Second Year Honours Class consisted of four 
students, who worked very conscientiously throughout the session. 
Mr. T. Llefelys Davies secured a distinctly good first class. Mr. Davies' 
success is very gratifying, especially as he was a science student who had 
taken the Final Course in Agricultural Economics, and therefore some- 
what handicapped on the historical and monetary theory sides. In 
future, the proposed alternative Honours course will be particularly 
attractive to this type of student, and with the willing co-operation of 
the Department of Agricultural Economics under Mr. A. W. Ashb}', 



54 



should prove a special feature of the work of the College. Mr. Leslie 
Powell and Mr. W. J. Walters were awarded Second Class (Division I), 
and the remaining candidate — Mr. Emlyn Richards — in obtaining 
Second Class (Division II), did remarkably well as an ex-service student 
who entered upon his degree course without the advantages of a Secondary 
School training. 

Agricultural Economics. — Five Diploma students pursued the Final 
Course in Agricultural Economics, and all made commendably good pro- 
gress. Hitherto the courses in Agricultural Economics given in the 
College were organised as part of the work of the Economics Department, 
and on several occasions made heavy demands on the teachers of the 
department. Last October the College was exceedingly fortunate in 
securing the services of Mr. A. W. Ashby as Advisory Lecturer in Agri- 
cultural Economics, and the department is much indebted to him for 
his ready co-operation and invaluable help and advice given to post- 
graduate students interested in the Economics of Agriculture. 

Post-graduate Work. — Mr. J. A. Thomas, M.A., as a Fellow of the 
University, continued his researches at the London School of Economics. 
Some of his work was recently published in ' Economics,' but the main 
results of his investigations will shortly appear in book form. Mr. 
E. A. Lloyd, a former student of the department, was awarded the 
degree of Magister, for an interesting dissertation (published) on " The 
Co-operative Movement in Italy, with special reference to Agriculture, 
Labour, and Production." A former student of the History Depart- 
ment of the College, Mr. W. M. Richards, obtained the like degree for a 
very careful and intensive investigation of "The history of Traeth Mawr, 
and the industrial results of the formation of the embankment." During 
the session too, four past students of the department, holding Board of 
Agriculture research training scholarships totalling in value upwards 
of ^900, were engaged upon various agricultural investigations. Mr. 
W. King, in addition to contributing several articles on economic and 
social matters to the Press, collected a good deal of really useful material 
for a regional survey study of the district of Caersws. Mr. J. M. Rees, 
has completed a volume on " Unemployment as an International 
Problem," and has published several valuable contributions in the 
Welsh Year Book on Housing and the Unemployed Studies. 

My best thanks are again due to my colleagues for their work and 
loyalty throughout the session. Mr. Herbert's appointment to a 
Travelling Scholarship will necessitate his absence during the coming 
session, but I am assured that steps will be taken to secure us the con- 
tinuance of the valuable co-operation of the Department of Internationa] 
Politics as in the past. 

PALAEOGRAPHY. 

Professor E. A. Lewis. 
Five students, including two members of the assistant-staff at the 
National Library, attended courses of instruction in Palaeography 
during the session. Two other students, both undergraduates in the 
Department of Welsh, entered on the course, but withdrew, owing 
apparently to the heavy demands on their time by the Honours Course 
in Welsh. For the first time for many years there were no recruits forth- 
coming from the History Department. This is to be regretted, inasmuch 
as the class was originally set up to meet their special requirements. 

CELTIC RESEARCH AND PALAEOGRAPHY. 

Mr. Timothy Lewis. 
Lectures. — Two courses of lectures were delivered. One on Celtic 
and Welsh Palaeography to post-graduate students with Palaeographical 
Exercises. Another introductory course on the history of Palaeography 
since Mabillon to two members of the staff of the National Library. 
(This started after the Christmas Vacation.) 



55 

Research. — I have been engaged mainly during this session on Celtic 
MSS. in European Libraries, and I have just returned from a tour of 
some of the Swiss and Italian Libraries, which have important collections 
of early Celtic MSS. 

One of the students has been doing research on Ficer Prichard during 
the session. 

PURE MATHEMATICS. 

Professor G. A. Schott. 

The number of students registered this session was 94, about 20 less 
than last session ; of these, 14 withdrew, 81 sat examinations and 64 
passed. On the whole very good work was done, except in the Inter- 
mediate Class, in which the general level of the work suffered owing to 
the presence of a relatively large number of very weak students left over 
from last session. The following students deserve special commendation : 
Intermediate : Miss A. G. Rees, Ordinary : J. E. Evans, Miss Edith 
Morris ; Special : T. S. E. Thomas ; First Year Honours : H. Falkner ; 
Second Year Honours : W. R. Morgans, H. Gammon. Three students 
took a Second Year Honours Course in Theory of Functions as one of their 
special subjects for the new combined Honours Course in Pure and 
Applied Mathematics, which came into operation for the first time this 
session ; two of them did excellent work and obtained First Class in 
the June examination. Mr. D. R. Williams, B.A., the recently appointed 
Assistant Lecturer, obtained his M.A. degree by Research with Dis- 
tinction on a thesis, the subject of which was Generalised Weierstrassian 
Products and which was highly commended by the referees. I very 
much regret that we shall lose the services of Mr. W. J . Webber, who has 
received an appointment at Toronto University, and I am glad to be able 
to report that Mr. W. G. L. Sutton, B.A., who is qualified by his Oxford 
training in Pure Mathematics as well as in Applied, has agreed to take 
a large share in the teaching work of the department. This will be of great 
advantage to us, for on the one hand Mr. Sutton during his three years 
in the department of Applied Mathematics has developed into an excellent 
teacher, and on the other, next session will be somewhat critical for 
the department of Pure Mathematics owing to the presence of Second 
Year Honours students in Pure Mathematics alone for the first time 
since the departure of Professor Young. In conclusion, I wish to thank 
Messrs. V. C. Morton, M.A., W. J. Webber, B.A., and D. R. Williams, 
B.A., for their unremitting work in the department, to which the successful 
work of the session is mainly due, and also Mr. W. G. L. Sutton, B.A., 
for the help he has given in taking a First Year Honours course in 
Differential Equations.

APPLIED MATHEMATICS. 

Professor G. A. Schott. 

The number of students registered this session was 47, slightly smaller 
than last session ; of these, 4 withdrew, 41 sat examinations and 37 
passed. The quality of the work in all classes was rather better than 
usual, and the following students are worthy of special commendation : — 
Intermediate : O. G. Jones, Miss Edith Morris, Ordinary : J. E. Evans ; 
Special : T. S. E. Thomas ; First Year Honours : H. Falkner ; Second 
Year Honours : W. R. Morgans. This year the examination for the 
new combined Honours Course in Pure and Applied Mathematics was 
held for the first time ; W. R. Morgans and H. Gammon were placed 
in the First Class, and G. T. James in the Second. The work of organisa- 
tion and teaching in connection with this new course proved rather 
heavy, as was to be expected, so that little time remained for research 
work. T. Lewis, B.Sc, published a paper in the Proceedings of the 
Royal Society on the Interpretation of Bucherer's Experiment on ejm, 
and in addition wrote a thesis of much more than average merit on the 
Principles of Least Action and of Invariance and Some Axio-symmetrical 
Solutions in the General Theory of Relativity, which obtained for him 
the M.Sc. Degree in the University of Wales. I am glad that the College 
has been able to secure his services as Assistant Lecturer for the coming 
session, in succession to Mr. W. G. L. Sutton, after his transference 
to the allied department. E. G. Lewis, B.Sc, Garrod Thomas Fellow, 
has been working at the Application of Dynamical Principles to the 
Quantum Theory, and in particular the Evaluation of some Quantum 
Integrals ; he has practically completed the necessary preliminary 
studies and collection of material, and hopes during the summer to 
obtain some new results sufficient for an M.Sc. thesis to be completed 
for June, 1926. He has just been awarded the Research Studentship 
at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. Professor Schott has a short paper 
in the press on a New Discussion of Bucherer's Experiment, which is to be 
published in the Philosophical Magazine for August, and, besides, has 
been able to make some progress with other pieces of research work. 
Much credit is due to Mr. W. G. L. Sutton, B.A., more especially for his 
valuable help with the higher work of the department, and also to Mr. 
D. R. Williams, B.A., for his work with the Intermediate Class.

It will be observed from the above table that the percentage of failures 
in the University Examinations is relatively less than in the College 
Examinations. This shows that the Pass standard required by the 
Internal Examiners in the College Examinations is high. 

E. J. Evans and D. O. Jones are to be congratulated on obtaining 
First Class Honours. 

R. M. Davies, B.Sc, who held a grant for Research from the Department 
of Scientific and Industrial Research, was successful in June in obtaining 
a post as Junior Scientific Assistant in the Research Department of the 
Royal Navy at Portsmouth. 

The work of the following students is worthy of special mention : — 

Intermediate : P. Jones ; D. Lewis. 

Subsidiary: J. E. Evans; J. Grindley ; W. T. Howell; D. I. 
Jenkins ; E. Tunicliffe. 

Final : E. J. Gooding ; N. W. Hanson ; I. T. Jones ; W. M. Jones ; 
T. S. E. Thomas. 

Research work has been actively pursued in the department during the 
session. 

The following papers have been published during the session :— 

(1) " on the temperature gradient in gases," by Messrs. W. Mandell 

and J. West. (Proc. Phys. Soc, London). 

(2) " on Condensation Nuclei produced by the illumination of air- 

halogen mixtures," by I. C. Jones. (Proc. Phys. Soc, London.) 

(3) A second paper by Mr. Mandell entitled " The Measurement of 

Temperature by thermocouples in unequally heated enclosures," 
has also been communicated to the Physical Society of London 
and will probably be accepted- 



58 



Other research work is as follows : — 

(4) R. M. Davies studied the electrification produced by the impact 

of air-blasts on solids. 

(5) Mr. West is engaged in measuring the heat-conductivity of gases. 

(6) Mr. Tunstall has obtained a Royal Society grant for the purchase 

of an X-ray spectrometer for crystal-structure work. 

(7) I have for some months been engaged in a problem relating to the 
photoelectric effect of sunlight. The investigation is not yet 
completed. 

Mr. I. Ceredig Jones, B.Sc, who holds the Rhondda studentship is work- 
ing under Sir Ernest Rutherford at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge. 
He is to be congratulated on obtaining the M.Sc. Degree in the University 
of Wales. 

E. J. Evans has been awarded a grant by the Department of Scientific 
and Industrial Research to enable him to pursue Research in Physics 
at this College for a period of two years. 

My best thanks are due to my colleagues, Messrs. Tunstall, Mandell, 
West, and Sulston, for their very efficient co-operation in the work of 
the Department.

There were no changes in the personnel of the teaching staff during the 
session. 

Intermediate Course. — This class was much smaller than in previous 
years, and several members had no previous knowledge of the subject. 
The general lecture course was conducted by me, while Messrs. Hudleston 
and Davies supervised the practical work. The examination results were 
satisfactory, and the work of the following students calls for special 
mention : — Miss A. Gwyneth Rees, Miss Ceridwen M. Griffiths, Messrs. 
T. W. Evans and A. J. Harries. 

Subsidiary Course. — Mr. Bury conducted the course in Physical 
Chemistry, while Mr. Davies took the Organic course, and Messrs. 
Hudleston and Davies the practical work. Excellent work was carried 
out by the following students : — Messrs. J. Grindley, A. J. Pugh and J. I. 
Stephens. 



59 



Final Course. — Mr. Hudleston conducted the classes in Physical and 
Inorganic Chemistry, while Mr. Green took the Organic Course. The 
class as a whole did excellent work, and the practical work supervised by 
Mr. Green maintained its previous high level. The following students are 
especially worthy of mention : — Messrs. I. G. Jones, W. Glynne Jones, 
W. C. Walmsley, Elvet Lewis, and Ivor Phillips. 

Honours Course. — The Honours Class fell into two divisions : (a) Pure 
Chemistry, (b) Chemistry with Agricultural Biochemistry. In the latter 
course a portion of the work was carried out in the Department of 
Agricultural Chemistry under the direction of Mr. Fagan. 

The class consisted of an exceedingly able group of students who 
worked with considerable zeal and enthusiasm. All members of the staff 
gave courses of lectures on special topics to the class, while Mr. David 
Evans generously conducted two classes a week in German translation. 
Mr. F. S. Brown also gave a special course of lectures on his own special 
subject of research. 

The tutorial work was conducted by Messrs. Bury, Hudleston and 
myself. 

In Pure Chemistry, Messrs. W. V. Lloyd, R. O. Roberts and C. Way 
obtained First Class Honours, Mr. Robert Jones Second Class Honours 
(Div. I), and Mr. J. I. Jones Second Class (Div. II). In Chemistry with 
Agricultural Biochemistry, Messrs. A. Rowlands and J. E. Watkin 
v/ere awarded 1st Class Honours, and Mr. E. E. Jones Second Class (Div. I). 

Postgraduate. — Mr. F. S. Brown, who held a grant from the Department 
of Scientific and Industrial Research, continued to pursue research work 
under Mr. Bury, while Mr. E. R. Jones (Garrod Thomas Research 
Scholar) also worked under the same direction. Both men did work 
of high standard, and are publishing important results. Mr. E. R. Jones 
has been awarded a Maintenance Grant from the Department of Scientific 
and Industrial Research for next session. 

Mr. R. L. Wilson (Garrod Thomas Research Scholar) has worked under 
the direction of Mr. Hudleston, and produced very good work, which he 
successfully presented for the M.Sc. degree. 

Mr. R. J. Loveluck (Thomas Davies Research Scholar) worked under 
my direction and presented his results successfully for the M.Sc. degree. 
Mr. S. P. Perkins (Garrod Thomas Research Scholar, 1922-23), also worked 
with me during vacations, and completed a thesis which earned the 
M.Sc. degree. 

Mr. W. E. Hamer (Thomas Davies Research Scholar, 1923-24), presented 
an account of work carried out under the direction of Mr. Bury, and also 
obtained the M.Sc. degree. 

The papers published during the year are as follows : — 

1. " The system Zinc Sulphate — Water," by C. R. Bury (Trans. Chem. 

Soc, 1924). 

2. " Cryoscopic Measurement with Nitrobenzene — Part III — " "Equil- 

ibrium in Nitrobenzene Solution," by F. S. Brown (Trans. Chem. 
Soc, 1925). 

3. " Colloid Systems in Nitrobenzene," by F. S. Brown and C. R. 

Bury (J. Phys. Chem., 1925).

Former members of the department who have earned distinction else- 
where include Messrs. W. I. Jones and J. B. Whitworth, who have 
obtained the Ph.D. degree at Cambridge, - nd Mr. G. G. Jones, who has 
taken the M.Sc. degree of the same University. Dr. O. R. Howell has 
been appointed Lecturer in Physical Chemistry at University College, 
Dundee, and Mr. W. L. Davies, M.Sc, Adviser in Agricultural Chemistry 
at University College, Reading, Several students have, during the 
year, been appointed to posts as Industrial Chemi ts. 

Mr. F. S. Gregory has rendered efficient assistance in the administrative 
and lecture preparation work during the session. The arrangements for 
the supply of apparatus and chemicals by Messrs. Robinson, Nelson & Co. 
have continued to run smoothly and economically.

The results of the examinations of the Intermediate, Subsidiary and 
Final Classes are very satisfactory, and the quality of the students 
taking these courses is very good. The Second Year Honours Class, 
besides being the smallest for many years, was also inferior in capacity. 

Next year's Honours Class, eight in number, includes some exceedingly 
able students. 

All the students attended regularly and worked diligently and, in spite 
of the raising of the standard, they managed to do well in the examinations. 

Mr. S. G. Jones, the Senior Lecturer, has been awarded by the Univer- 
sity the degree of D.Sc. for his researches on Rhytisma, Ophiobolus, &c. 
Mr. P. W. Carter, the Assistant Lecturer, obtains the degree of M.Sc. 
for his work on " The Cytology of Padina Pavonia," and Mr. S. Bowen 
Thomas, a post-graduate student, also obtains the M.Sc. for his thesis 
on ' 1 The Woodlands of North Cardiganshire. ' ' Mr. J . G. Davies continues 
his researches on Dactylis glomerata. 

It is my pleasing duty this year again to speak in the highest terms of 
the excellence of the work done by my two efficient assistants. 

Owing to the lack of funds no additional museum work has been 
undertaken this session.

Elementary Course. — Nine students preparing for the Diploma in 
Agriculture entered for this course and five attended lectures and 
demonstrations throughout the Michaelmas and Lent Terms. Four 
students pursued the course during the Michaelmas Term and postponed 
the second half of the course until next session. The work of this class was 
distinctly good, and of those who completed the whole course, the name 
of Mr. J. G. Lewis is worthy of special mention. 

Intermediate Course. — Thirty-five students entered for this co rse 
and thirty-four sat the College Examination in June. Twenty-four 
passed the examination successfully. The percentage of failures was 
rather higher than usual, but the class was uneven in quality. Excellent 
work was done by the following students : — Misses E. E. Jackson, M. T. 
Seaman, A. M. Trolez, and Messrs. E. R. Davies, L. S. Howell, J. E. S. 
Orrin and D. Williams. 

Subsidiary (2nd Year) Course. — Eight students attended the course 
throughout the session and they all passed the College Examination. 
The work of this class was particularly good, and special mention should 
be made of Miss F. E. Wilks, and Messrs. W. N. G. Davies and R. R. 
Thomas. 

Final {3rd Year) Course. — This class numbered five throughout the year 
and although smaller than in previous years, the standard of work was. 
excellent. There were no failures in the University Examination. 

Honours Course. — Mr. K. E. Williams, B.Sc, and Miss W. M. Metcalfe, 
B.Sc, pursued the Honours Course. Both students worked very well 
throughout the year. Mr. Williams obtained a First Class, whilst Miss 
Metcalfe was placed in the First Division of the Second Class. 

Mr. K. A. Davies, B.Sc, who was awarded a University Studentship 
a year ago, continued his researches in the area around Abergwessin and 
Drygarn. He presented the results of his investigations in candidature 
for the M.Sc. degree. The work was very highly commended by the 
Examiners and he was awarded the degree. Mr. Davies has completed 
an important contribution to our knowledge of the geology of Central 



62 



Wales, and is now preparing his thesis for publication. He proposes to 
continue his investigations in the same general area and recently applied 
for a University Fellowship. Mr. Davies was placed proxime accessit, 
but I understand that the University will probably make him a special 
grant of a one-year Fellowship. 

Mr. R. M. Jehu, M.Sc, an old student of the Department, is commencing 
an investigation of the geology of the district around Pontrhydygroes 
(Cardiganshire) . It is hoped that his work on the geology of the country 
between Towyn and Abergynolwyn, which he presented for his M.Sc. 
degree, will be read before the Geological Society of London during 
the coming session. 

Mr. K. E. Williams, B.Sc, who obtained First Class Honours this year, 
has been awarded the Keeling Research Scholarship of ^50, and it is 
hoped that he will return to College next session to pursue a scheme 
of research. 

In January of this year, Professor L. W. Collet, Professor of Geology 
in the University of Geneva, and a distinguished Alpine Geologist, 
visited Aberystwyth and delivered the annual lecture of the Scientific 
Society. His lecture on the geological structure of the Alps was greatly 
appreciated and enjoyed by a large audience. He gave also a special 
departmental lecture on Alpine Lakes. 

There were no changes in the personnel of the teaching staff, and 
the distribution of the work of the Department was the same as that 
given in my last annual report. Messrs. K. A. Davies and R. M. Jehu 
carried on their researches under my supervision. 

As in previous years, I have to report considerable additions to the 
Departmental Museum and Library. The collections have been further 
strengthened by gifts and personal collecting by members of the staff 
and students. No additional accommodation has been found possible, 
but the need for it is still as urgent and necessary as ever. 

The Department is again indebted to J. B. Willans, Esq., Dolf organ, 
for gifts of various kinds, and a contribution of £\0 towards the funds 
of the Department. 

Field excursions were organised throughout the session, and at Easter 
Mr. Challinor and Mr. Piatt took the Final and Honours students to 
Bristol. About a week was spent in visiting different localities of 
geological interest. 

Mr. Challinor published a paper in the Geological Magazine entitled 
" Farey's Grit," and Mr. Piatt read a paper on " The Pre-Cambrian 
Rocks of the Malvern Inlier " before the Geological Society of London 
(Abstracts of the Proceedings of the Geological Society, 1925). In the 
summer of 1923 Mr. Piatt was awarded a Travelling Scholarship by the 
College Senate, and attended a course in Alpine Geology organised by the 
University of Geneva. During the past two sessions he has given special 
lectures within the Department on Alpine Tectonics, and is now engaged 
in preparing an account of the most recent views of Continental geologists 
-on the geological structure of the Alps. This summer he is taking a 
party of teachers for three weeks to the Alps. 

I was unable to attend College from the end of November until about 
the middle of January owing to illness. This considerably interfered 
with the time which was available for me to devote to my own research 
work, and on my return to College, I was fully occupied until the end of 
the session in the teaching and general administrative work of the 
Department. 

I wish to place on record once more my sincere thanks to my colleagues, 
Messrs. Challinor and Piatt, for their efficient and loyal services. During 
my absence they carried on the work of the Department in a perfectly 
satisfactory manner.

ZOOLOGY. 

Professor R. Douglas Laurie. 

I again thank Mr. E. Emrys Watkin, B.Sc, for his very efficient 
help as full-time Assistant Lecturer and his loyal co-operation in the 
affairs of the Department generally. I am very pleased to report that he 
has been added to the permanent staff of the College as from the com- 
mencement of next session. I also thank Mr. Aneurin Lewis, B.Sc, for 
his conscientious and zealous work as half-time Assistant Lecturer. 

Owing to the continued stringency of financial conditions the arrange- 
ment of having a half-time Assistant Lecturer in place of a second 
full-time one has been continued during last session. As I indicated in 
my last report it will be a very genuine relief to the work of the Depart- 
ment when the College finances render it possible to revert to a full-time 
appointment. 

The number of students working in the Department during the session 
was 40, distributed as follows : —

Agricultural Diploma Course. — Mr. P. A. Little, B.Sc, has given 
valuable help by taking charge of this course. Eleven candidates sat 
for the Welsh Diploma and four for the National Diploma. Of these, 
ten and three respectively were successful. 

Intermediate Course. — The lectures were given by myself and the 
practical instruction by Mr. Watkin. The following may be mentioned 
as having done good work : — Miss Katie Lake and Miss R. E. Harries. 

Subsidiary Course {First Year Final). — The lectures were given by 
myself and the practical instruction by Mr. Aneurin Lewis. The work of 
Miss W. M. Picton and Miss E. E. Jackson deserves special mention. 

Final Course {Second Year Final). Mr. Watkin gave the lectures on 
Entomology and the other lectures were given by myself. Mr. Watkin 
took the practical work. Mr. P. L. Emery's work was very satisfactory 
throughout the session, though his Final Examination result was disap- 
pointing. 

Honours Course. — In addition to supervision by myself, Mr. Watkin 
and Mr. Lewis, valuable assistance was given in Entomology by Mr. 
J. R. W. Jenkins, Entomological Adviser. Both the Honours students, 
Miss F. L. Beanland and Mr. E. E. Edwards, were placed in the First 
Division of the Second Class. They both worked well, and Mr. Edwards' 
thesis, in particular, was commended. 



64 



Postgraduate Research. — Dr. Roshan Lai Chopra returned to the 
Department for the first part of the session to complete for publication 
his work on the Cocksfoot Moth. He returned to India shortly before 
Christmas. 

Miss K. E. Carpenter, M.Sc, has continued her investigations upon 
the local Freshwater Fauna in relation to Lead Pollution, and has this 
year been awarded the Ph.D. degree. She contributed a paper upon 
her work at the meeting of the British Association in Toronto. The 
Department of Scientific and Industrial Research has renewed her grant 
for the year 1925-1926. 

Mr. W. M. Speight, M.Sc, has worked throughout the session under a 
grant from the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research. He 
has carried further his investigation upon the fauna of the waters of 
Borth Bog in relation to Hydrogen Ion Concentration and Salinity. 

Mr. D. O. Morgan, B.Sc, was transferred from the Department early 
in October to work at Nematode Disease of Potatoes at Kirton, Lines. 

Mr. E. Aneurin Lewis, B.Sc, has been appointed Field Officer in 
Helminthology in succession to Mr. Morgan, on a half-time basis. He 
has been continuing the quantitative survey of the Helminthic Parasites 
of Domestic Animals in the Aberystwyth District, which had been 
commenced by Mr. Morgan. He has, this year, been awarded the 
degree of M.Sc 

Mr. P. A. Little, B.Sc, has continued his work upon the Helminthic 
Parasites of Fish, under a renewal of his grant from the Department of 
Scientific and Industrial Research. 

Mr. E. E. Watkin, B.Sc, having been awarded a grant from the 
College Travelling Scholarship Fund, paid a very fruitful visit to Denmark 
and Norway during the summer vacation of 1924, when he was able to 
see the methods of the workers in Marine Zoology in these countries. 
He was entertained very hospitably and made personal friendships with 
those carrying out the same kind of research as himself. He has carried 
his work upon herring migrations further afield, beginning to link up 
with workers in the Isle of Man and the English Channel. 

Mr. D. Dilwyn John, B.Sc, has worked during the session, with a 
grant from the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, upon 
the intestinal Helminthic Parasites of the Rabbit, and has this year been 
awarded the M.Sc. degree. Mr. John is to be congratulated upon having 
been appointed by the Colonial Office as Zoologist on the scientific staff 
attached to the ' Discovery ' Expedition. The voyage of the ' Discovery * 
will, it is understood, occupy two or three years. 

Miss Blodwen Fox, B.Sc, has worked during the session, with a 
grant from the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, upon 
the anatomy of the Marine Triclad, Fovea affinis, and has also carried 
out some intensive work upon the sand fauna at Ynyslas. She has been 
awarded this year the M.Sc. degree. 

The following items have been published during the year ending 
June 30th, 1925 :— 

(1) J. R. W. Jenkins. — Observations on the Life-History of Tapeworms 

of the Genus Moniezia. Ann. Appl. Biol., Vol. XL, Nos. 3 and 4,

(3) Report by R. Douglas Laurie, for the year 1923-24, on work 
carried out in the Department of Zoology, University College of 
Wales, Aberystwyth, by Elsie Horsman, by aid of a grant for 
' free ' research made by the Development Commissioners. In 
Fourteenth Rept. Dev. Com. ended 31st March, 1924, pp. 126 —

Mr. Bernard Burtt, who was a student of the Department from 1920 
to 1922, has been appointed by the Colonial Office as Reclamation 
Officer in connection with the campaign against Sleeping Sickness in the 
tse-tse fly country in Tanganyika Territory. 

Miss Blodwen Williams has continued her careful work as Laboratory 
Attendant. She has this session attended the Final Course in Zoology 
and successfully taken the examination set for degree candidates. 

The grant of ^150 made by the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries 
for the year ending 31st March, 1925, has helped in meeting the running 
expenses of the Draig-y-mor and other expenses associated with the 
carrying out of Marine Investigations. 

A very important and valuable gift has been made to the Department 
by J. B. Willans, Esq., of Dolf organ, Kerry, Montgomeryshire. It 
includes over 330 volumes on Birds, some of them very handsomely 
bound, which had been collected by his late uncle, Mr. Francis Nicholson, 
a well-known ornithologist. The gift includes as well some other 
Zoological books, for example, an excellent copy of Pennant's British 
Zoology, and a book by Tho. Robinson, Rector of Ouseby, in Cumberland, 
published in London, 1696, entitled New Observations on the Natural 
History of this World of Matter and this World of Life. There are a 
number of reprints of scientific papers by various authors, Mr. Nicholson's 
own printed writings, and some of his correspondence. Also there are 
some specimens of rare varietal forms of Birds, and still further, a fine 
picture of Linnaeus. This gift is the more welcome because the Depart- 
ment already possesses a particularly fine collection of Welsh Birds. 

The Honble. Samuel Vestey has again given ^50 to the Department 
to help forward its work. This help is highly valued. 

Other gifts include two buzzards, Butes vulgaris, from the Rev. J. H. 
Williams, taken at Llanbrynmair. 

The work of the Department continues to be seriously hampered by lack 
of suitable accommodation. It is carried out in part at the Old College 
Buildings and in part at the Agricultural Buildings. I therefore close 
this report, as I have done its two last predecessors, by an appeal for 
financial assistance to enable us to go a stage further with the conversion 
of the Cambrian Street premises into Zoological Laboratories. A half- 
crown fund has been started and so far £30 has been collected, mostly 
in very small sums ; this has made it possible to have iron girders, which 
had been already bought, placed in position for the strengthening of the 
upper floor. This detail is mentioned in the hope that it will be realised 
that no donation can be too small to be of use. But to finish we shall 
require some ^2,500.

The dissertations required from Honours and Diploma students have in 
some cases been of high quality. Mr. Emyr Estyn Evans worked on the 
" Pyrenees as a Barrier " and completed a good essay on this subject 
in historical geography, thanks partly to opportunities of travel afforded 
him through the kindness of Mr. J. B. Willans. Miss F. F. Laidler pre- 
pared a valuable set of maps of Spanish crops which has interested 
specialists and should be published. Mr. J. E. Daniel worked out an 
interesting study of the factors of the distribution of adherence to the 
various religious denominations in Wales, and it is hoped that this study 
may be carried much further. Mr. Trevor Lewis experimented in mapping 
linguistic details from the census returns, and also successfully conducted 
excavations to solve problems arising out of his study of his own district. 
Mr. Meurig Jones began a valuable survey of traditional types of rural 
houses in S. Wales. 

A good deal of postgraduate work was pushed forward during the 
session. Miss A. M. Jones obtained the degree of M.Sc. for a thesis 
on the Welsh Woollen Industry, and Mr. E.G. Bowen made good progress 
with an anthropometrical survey of S.W. Wales in which he is working 
out correlations with a number of sociological data. 

Messrs. D. V. Thomas, A. E. Lewis and R. A. Pelham, and Miss E. 
Lloyd Hughes did very good work in the Final Class, while Messrs. 
Deiniol Williams and J. E. S. Orrin stood out among the members of 
the Subsidiary Class. 

Publications from the Department and its former students include : — 

1. Presidential address to the Cambrian Archaeological Association, 

1924 ; Inaugural address to the 1924 Conference of the Training 
College Association ; Addresses to the League of Nations Union 
Annual Educational Meeting and to the Eugenics Education

The " Geographical Teacher " has been edited and issued from Aber- 
ystwyth to nearly 5,000 subscribers as heretofore. I have to thank 
Misses Fleming and Harris and Messrs. Whitehouse, Pelham and others 
for much help in the matter of reviews, index, bibliography, &c. 

Miss Harris has some work on agricultural settlements as well as some 
maps of archaeological distributions in an advanced stage of preparation. 
Miss Fleming has continued her important anthropological work on growth 
of children, and has issued a third volume of folk tales for schools under 
the title " Round the World in Folk Tale." Mr. Trevor Lewis' linguistic 
maps are being considered for publication in the "Annales de Geographie, " 
and a good deal of other work is being published shortly, including a 
series of little books by Mr. Harold Peake and myself. 

The organisation of Departmental Museums and Collections has been 
advanced a long stage, -thanks to the generosity of Mr. Willans and to 
the enthusiastic help of Misses Fleming, Harris and E. Owen, and Messrs.. 
E. G. Bowen, I. C. Peate, R. A. Pelham, W. J. Varley, and others. 

Summer Schools and External Lectures have perforce received less 
attention of late, but lectures have been given by members of the depart- 
ment at Wrexham, Port Talbot, Bangor, Rhyd Lewis, Sheffield, Derby, 
Kerry, &c, and Mr. Whitehouse is one of the lecturers for the City of 
London Vacation Course in Education for 1925, and for the Derby 
Training College Summer School for 1925. 

The Geographical Society in the department has been very active 
during the year under the Presidency of Mr. E. G. Bowen, B.A., who 
has made it an introduction to many informal discussions of research 
in progiess in the department. The Society received visits from Dr. 
Sommerfelt (Oslo, Norway), Mr. R. U. Sayce and Mr. D. C. Evans (St. 
Clears). The Inter-University Geographical Conference of 1925 was also 
held at Aberystwyth, and we had the pleasure of receivng delegates 
from Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Bristol, Reading, Southampton, 
London. 

The Staff of the College Library and Mr. Richard Ellis, M.A., are 
asked to accept our best thanks for much help to advanced students. 

The Library of the Geographical Association and its collection of 
lantern slides have grown greatly during the session, thanks to the 
devotion of Miss Fleming, to whose invaluable help in many ways both 
students and staff of the department are deeply indebted. 

The authorities of the National Library of Wales have helped both 
classes and individual students in many ways as in previous years. 
Their steadfast co-operation has enabled us to raise the standard of our 
work in several directions. 

The decision to close the Hall of Residence for Men is a severe blow 
to the Department, which profited greatly by the opportunities afforded 
at the Hostel for exchange of ideas and discussion among research students. 

We acknowledge gratefully gifts of books, views and objects from 
Mr. G. H. Green, Mr. E. R. Dudlyke, Mr. J. B. Willans, and express our 
deep thanks to Mr. S. K. Greenslade for purchases of archaeological 
interest made by him from the Museum Endowment Fund.

In conclusion I wish to thank Mr. W. E. Whitehouse and Miss Harris 
for their invaluable enthusiasm and initiative, which contribute so much 
to the strength of the department. Miss Harris conducted with great 
success a party of Honours students around France at Easter, with the 
help of a grant from the Travelling Scholarships Fund, and the same fund 
generously helped me to attend the International Geographical Congress 
at Cairo, April, 1925. 

LAW. 

Professor T. A. Levi. 

I have the honour to report that the total number of law students 
during session 1924-1925 was 57. This does not include the agricultural 
students who studied land law during Michaelmas and Lent terms, and 
who numbered from 20 to 40 in different subjects. 

The law students proper were classified as follows : — 



Constitutional Law .,. . . . . . . 25 

International Law . . . . .... 12 

Roman Law . . . . . . . . . . 15 

Contract Tort and Crime . . . . . . 11 

Real and Personal Property .. . . .. 11 

History of English Law . . . . . . . . 5 

Common Law . . . . . . . . . . 6 

Conveyancing . . . . . . . . . . 7 

Equity . . . . . . . . . . . . 7 

Jurisprudence . . . . . . . . . . 7 

Honours LL.B. . . . . . . . . . . 5 

(The total Honours Course consisting of seven subjects). 

Research students for LL.B. . . . . . . 2 

Preliminary Students . . . . . . . . 3 



For the first time there was held during session 1924-1925 a full 
Honours Course. The Honours Examination consisted of eight papers. 
Four students presented themselves for the Honours Examination, and the 
four were awarded a First Class. The names of the successful candidates 
are D. J. Llywelfryn Davies, D. R. Seaborne Davies, H. R. G. Hammond, 
and T. Alun Jones. As he stood highest in the examination on the 
marks awarded by the External Examiner, H. R. G. Hammond was recom- 
mended for the Samuel Evans University Law Prize. 

During last session the following new appointments were made — 
Mr. H. J. S. Jenkins, M.A., B.C.L., of Jesus College, Oxford, and Mr. 
T. Ellis Lewis, B.A., LL.B., Scholar of Gonville and Caius College, 
Cambridge, to be Assistant Lecturers in Law. In the course of the 
session Mr. Jenkins was successful in winning the Barstow Scholarship 
at the Bar and the Vinerian Law Scholarship at Oxford, and we take this 
opportunity of offering him our sincere congratulations. Mr. C. H. 
Roberts, B.A., of Hertford College, Oxford, a former law student, was 
appointed Assistant Lecturer in Law at the University College, Exeter. 

The North Wales course of study for Articled Clerks was held through- 
out the session at Rhyl, and under the supervision of Mr. J. W. Van 
Druten proved even more successful than last year. It is now proposed 
to establish at Aberystwyth a separate course of legal studies for articled 
clerks in Central Wales, and to apply for an increased grant from the 
Law Society to meet the cost. The Faculty of Law is in urgent need of 
a departmental grant to meet the expenses of these special courses. 

The prize awarded for the best essay on a subject connected with 
International Law was won by Mr. D. E. J. Davies, Ll.B., an ex-service 
man, with an essay on the Permanent Court of International Justice. 
For the coming session the subject is " The Freedom of the Seas." 

Among public lectures delivered by me during last session may be 
mentioned lectures on the British Parliament and Constitution at 
Swansea, Newtown, Llanybyther, Talywern, Tregaron, Bethania, 



69 



Aberystwyth, and in London ; lectures on the League of Nations at 
various Cardiganshire branches, Tregaron, Llangeitho, Penuwch and 
Crosswood ; and various public lectures at Carmarthen, Machynlleth and 
other places. 

I cannot conclude this report without expressing my deep obligation to 
my colleagues, Mr. Van Druten, Mr. Jenkins and Mr. Lewis, for their 
invaluable assistance — especially in meeting the needs of articled clerks 
and carrying through the new and complicated Honours scheme. The 
brilliant success of the four Honours candidates at the end of the session 
is to be attributed, more than to anything else, to the continuous and 
unflagging interest taken by them in the work of the students, both by 
the number of their lectures and by their constant private assistance. 

I append Mr. Van Druten 's special report of the North Wales Law 
School, conducted by us at Rhyl by arrangement with the University 
College of North Wales. 

North Wales Law School : Mr. J. W. van Druten. 

The North Wales Law School has now completed its second year of 
work, commencing October, 1924. and ending June, 1925, divided into 
three terms of seven weeks each. 

On Tuesday in each week (on Wednesday during the third term) the 
Intermediate Class has been held from 3-15 — 6-15. Eight students 
attended this class in the first term and seven in the remaining terms, 
one student having completed his compulsory minimum attendance 
in the first term. Two of these students were repeating the Intermediate 
Course from the previous year ; the remaining six were articled clerks 
attending for the first time under the Solicitors Act, 1922. From 
3-15 — 4-40 lectures were delivered on the law of Real and Personal 
Property, based on Vol. 2 of Stephen's Commentaries on the Laws of 
England. From 4-50 — 6-15 lectures were delivered on Common Law and 
Procedure (including the general principles of Contract and Tort, the 
law of Sales, Negotiable Instruments, Partnership, Insurance, etc., 
as well as Procedure in the King's Bench and Chancery Divisions of the 
High Court and the Principles of Bankruptcy) based on Vol. 3 of the same 
work. 

On Wednesdays (Tuesdays in the 3rd term) the Final Class has met 
from 3 — 6. In the first term two students attended this class, which 
was joined in the second term by a former member of the Intermediate 
Class, after having passed his Solicitors' Intermediate Examination 
in November, 1924. From 3-0 — 5-25 lectures on Conveyancing were 
delivered, together with five special lectures on the law of Trusts and 
Trustees. 

The second hour, from 4-35 — 6-0 has been occupied as follows : — 
In the first term lectures on Criminal and Magisterial Law and Pro- 
cedure ; in the second term lectures on Bankruptcy and Probate Law, 
and in the third term a special course of lectures on Private International 
Law. 

In each class terminal papers have been set, to be answered by the 
students at home, without reference to text books or notes. The 
standard of answers in the first two terms has been excellent, only 5 out 
of the 40 papers sent in being marked below 40 per cent. The papers for 
the third term have not yet been marked. Three of the students intend 
sitting for the Solicitors' Intermediate Examination in November, 1925. 

Attendance has been very regular indeed. Discussion is encouraged 
at the classes, and the students have shown a very keen interest and en- 
thusiasm for the work. On three occasions the classes have been taken 
by Mr. H. J. S. Jenkins ; on one occasion by Mr. T. Ellis Lewis, and the 
remainder have been taken by the writer. 

It is proposed to include a course of lectures on the Law of Property 
Act, 1925, and its ancillary Statutes in the Final Class, commencing 
October, 1925, and it is also hoped that it may be possible to arrange 
a Students' Debating Society in conjunction with the classes.

INTERNATIONAL POLITICS. 

Professor C. K. Webster. 

Mr. Sydney Herbert conducted, as usual, the main course in Inter- 
national Politics and Administration during the year. He also gave 
weekly talks on Current Events, in which an increasing number of 
students showed a sustained interest. A number of students of the De- 
partment of Law attended one of his courses. I continued my lectures 
on Diplomatic History during the Autumn Term, and also gave a course 
of public lectures on " The League of Nations." Both Mr. Sydney 
Herbert and I gave public addresses in North and South Wales, including 
several addresses to teachers. 

Miss Friedlander, B.Sc. (Lond.), and Mr. A. Gordon Bagnall, B.A. 
(Oxford), were the Wilson students in residence. Miss Friedlander 
subsequently studied in Geneva and Mr. Bagnall has been in the United 
States speaking on the League of Nations. Mr. I for B. Powell, who held 
a Library Studentship, has been awarded a valuable Riggs Fellowship 
at the University of Michigan, U.S.A. Mr. S. Maccoby, a former Wilson 
student, has also obtained a position in the United States. Mr. A. Tajiri 
and Mr. Ochta, two Japanese students, candidates for the Japanese 
Diplomatic Service, also read in the Department during the year. Two 
Welsh students have applied for registration for the M.A. under the 
new regulations. Owing to lack of funds no Wilson Studentships were 
awarded this year. 

The Library has grown steadily and the number of serious readers 
has increased. The collection of books and documents has now reached 
such dimensions as to necessitate provision for supervision. 

I attended the Fifth Session of the Assembly of the League of Nations 
at Geneva in September, 1924. Subsequently I paid a visit to Upper 
Silesia, where I was able to have special researches into the economic and 
political conditions of the partitioned area. I them went to Warsaw, 
where I lectured to the University and to a group of public men specially 
interested in International Politics, and discussed current problems with 
the Prime Minister and other statesmen. I returned via Berlin, where 
I visited officials of the Foreign Office and others. 

At the end of December I went to the United States in order to attend 
the Anglo-American Conference at the Annual Meeting of the American 
Historical Association at Richmond (Va), where I read a paper on the 
study of British Foreign Policy. Subsequently I taught Diplomatic 
History at the University of Minnesota during the winter quarter. 
I then made a tour to the Pacific Coast and back to the East Coast, lec- 
turing at a number of Universities and Colleges. At Washington D.C. 
I was able to make some researches in the Library of Congress and the 
Archives of the Department of State. I was also received by the President, 
Senator Borah, Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, and Mr. 
Herbert Hoover, Secretary of Commerce, who were good enough to give 
me much information and to discuss many current problems. After 
visiting New York, Boston, and a number of other cities in the United 
States and Canada, I returned to the University of California at Berkeley, 
California, where I taught Diplomatic History during the summer session, 
returning home in August, after travelling in all about 30,000 miles. 
During my stay in the United States I delivered a number of public 
addresses on the Prevention of War and kindred subjects. Everywhere 
in the United States and Canada I was treated with the greatest possible 
kindness, and the recollection of the wonderful hospitality and friend- 
liness will always be remembered by me with deep gratitude. 

I have arranged to visit the Sixth Assembly of the League of Nations 
at Geneva in September.

* Examination of two students deferred till Christmas owing to ill-health. 

We continue to be indebted to a number of our colleagues, not in the 
Education Department, for help in the history, theory and practice of 
Education. 

The course in the principles of religious instruction indicated in last 
year's report was duly carried through. It consisted of : — 

(1) The approach to the Bible — General Principles. — Rev. Herbert 

Morgan, M.A. 

(2) The Old Testament. — Professor Norman Jones, M.A. 

(3) The New Testament.— Rev. T. E. Roberts, M.A. 

(4) Geographical Background. — Professor Fleure. 

(5) Pedagogical Principles. — Mr. D. J. Saer and the staff of the 

Department. 

Proposals have been made to the Board of Education for further 
developments in Art and Craft work in relation to education and for 
extension of recognition of Music. 



72 



During the session Miss Davidson, after some years of excellent service, 
resigned her post as Instructress in Physical Exercises. Miss B. G. 
Arnold, Instructress at Bedales' School, was appointed in her place. 

Degree Classes in Education. 

Twenty-seven students passed the degree examination at the Sub- 
sidiary stage and 7 at the Final stage. One student — Mr. Frederick 
Hubert Child — obtained Second Class Honours, and one student com- 
pleted the first Year Honours Course. 
Lectures by Professor Watson. 

Owing to an accident in which he was severely injured Professor 
Watson's lectures were delivered to the degree and post-graduate 
classes in the third term instead of the second. 
Publications. 

Early in the session was published " The Bilingual Problem," em- 
bodying the results of investigations carried on through several years 
by Mr. Saer and Mr. Smith. The book surveys the problem as a whole 
and puts forward suggestions for a new organisation of elementary- 
schools in bilingual areas. Mr. John Hughes, who has had many years' 
experience in the teaching of Welsh, collaborated with Messrs. Saer 
and Smith. 

The book has been favourably reviewed in a large number of English 
and Welsh journals, including the Times Educational Supplement, the 
Journal of Education, the Forum of Education, the Educational Outlook, 
the Western Mail, the South Wales News, the Daily Post, Baner ac 
Amserau Cymru, Y Baner, Y Lienor, Y Cyfarwyddwr. It has been 
noticed twice in the Manchester Guardian, once with reservations, and 
once by Mr. Ernest Rhys entirely favourably.

MUSIC. 

Professor Sir Walford Da vies. 

I. — Degree Work. 

Twenty-four students have taken Degree Courses in the department 
during the session, — 12 taking music as part of their B.A. and 12 the 
various Mus. Bac. Courses ; 10 of these took first year, 8 took second 
year and 6 third year Courses. All first and second-year candidates 
passed in their musical papers, but three students have to sit again in 
one subject each, — in Acoustics, Intermediate English and Intermediate 
History of Music, respectively. Four of the six who took Finals passed, 
two only of these took Final in Mus. Bac. Two exercises were sub- 
mitted and both failed. 

It should be noted that during the session the string-players in the 
Department helped the degree students by playing their practical work 
for them from time to time for readier self-criticism and correction — 
a very useful arrangement made by Dr. de Lloyd and Mr. Arthur Williams 
together which may, it is hoped, be developed. 

II. — Teachers' Training Courses and Evening Class Work. 

Nineteen students pursued the T.T.C. first and second year. Six 
completed their second year successfully and qualified both in paper- 
work and practical tests for the diploma. Sixteen students pursued the 
Evening Class Course. 

III. — Instrumental Work {lessons and ensemble). 

Nine students have studied the violin or viola ; six the cello or double 
bass, seventeen the pianoforte. Mr. Arthur Williams reports that about 
one hundred ensemble classes have been held, and the following is a list 
of Chamber-music in which students have taken part : — 

Two Pianoforte Trios by Mozart (Nos. 1 and 3). 

Two by Brahms (C minor and C major). 

Two ,, by Mendelssohn (D minor and C minor). 

One „ by Couperin. 

One „ by Smetana. 

One by Hurlstone. 

Four String Trios by Mozart and Beethoven. 

Pianoforte Quartet by Mozart. 

Several String Quartets by Haydn. 

Three ,, ,, by Mozart. 

Four by Beethoven. 

One „ „ by Brahms. 

One by Smetana. 

One „ „ by Ravel. 

String Quartet by Mozart (G minor). 

by Brahms (G major). 

Two Sextets by Brahms. 

One Octet by Schubert. 

One Octet by Mendelssohn. 

IV. — Vocal Work (lessons and ensemble). 

Fourteen students have studied singing under Mr. Allen. He reports 
favourably except that sight-singing is poor. It is hoped to tackle this 
problem more intensively in the coming session. Nine of the fourteen 
vocalists have taken part in College Concerts. The vocal ensemble work 
other than in the College Choral Union has formed a notable feature of 
the session's work, vieing honourably with the instrumental ensemble 
activity mentioned above. Small bodies of voices have studied works in 
English and Welsh — the Angharad Choir has provided two new works 
by Dr. de Lloyd and Harp-tunes arranged by Dr. Lloyd Williams. The 
Special Choir has studied Palestrina's Stabat Mater, Vaughan Williams's 
Mass in G minor, and smaller works. 



75 



V .— Other more general activities. 

The five general College Musical Events weekly, instituted in 1919, 
continued encouragingly during the session, (i) The College Orchestral 
Union included in their weekly studies Mozart Overtures, Schubert's 
C major Symphony, parts of Beethoven's Symphonies, Hoist's St. Paul's 
Suite, and Fugal Concerto and certain works, string ensemble only, in 
preparation for the Festival, (ii) The College Choral Union, numbering 
about 99 members, has flourished healthily under Mr. Allen, and studied 
Bach's Christmas Oratorio (Parts I. and II.), Part of the Matthew 
Passion, Hiawatha's Wedding Feast and Death of Minnehaha, several 
works from the Wembley Book and smaller works by Parry and Hoist, 
(iii) The College Weekly Concerts have seen the production of numerous 
Chamber works under Mr. Williams's guidance, Choral and Orchestral 
works (named above) under Dr. de Lloyd and Mr. Allen, and visits from 
Mr. Harold Samuel, Mr. Raymond Jeremy, Mr. Norman Greenwood, 
Mr. Edward Mitchell (in a Scriabine Recital), Mr. George Alroyd (Flute), 
Miss D'Aranyi, and her sister, Miss Gwendoline Mason (Harp Recital), 
and Miss Muriel Hughes and Miss Blodwen Caerleon (vocalists), (iv) 
The Friday At- Homes of Chamber Music have this session included many 
performances by students themselves, and have been keenly and well 
attended, (v) The Open Lectures on Music have been given weekly during 
the session by Dr. Lloyd Williams on Welsh Music, by Dr. de Lloyd on 
Nationalism in Music, and by myself on Schubert, Grieg, Coleridge-Taylor, 
Ravel ; on Bach and his Key-system, and on scales and melody. 

VI. — The Sixth College Festival was given on and from June 26th to 
29th inclusive. This is in reality a combined in-College and extra-mural 
effort, run by the help of the National Council of Music. It is note- 
worthy that the ultimate success and sound establishment of this 
important event depends not only in its first tentative stages but — as it 
would seem — permanently upon the successful amalgamation of College 
and Council energies. Though the membership of our Musical Club stands 
at nearly 800, it is obviously impossible to support a Festival of seven 
sessions in which the Orchestral provision if adequate costs roughly 
a pound per minute without much extra-mural support. This year the 
Club Committee, now happily established on comprehensively represen- 
tative lines, threw its whole weight into the enterprise, enlisting the 
help of the Town Council and the Great Western Railway to attract the 
needed number of supporters. Through kindly and vigorous co-operation 
much was done, and the Festival deficit substantially lessened. The 
whole formidable problem is by no means solved, but the effect of this 
year's Festival has been to increase the general determination to maintain 
the annual event in Aberystwyth at all costs. The Musical value of 
this year's Festival was greatly enhanced by the extraordinary willing 
help and presence of Sir Hugh Allen, Mr. Adrian Boult, Miss D'Aranyi, 
Miss Eaton, Mr. Jeremy, Mr. Hoist, Mr. Harold Samuel, Dr. Vaughan 
Williams, and others. 

The chief works performed this year were Six Symphonies — Haydn's 
99th in E flat, Mozart's G minor, Beethoven's Fourth, Schubert's 
Unfinished, Brahms's Fourth in E minor, and Vaughan Williams's 
Pastoral ; also the last-named composer's Mass in G minor, Palestrina's 
Stabat Mater, Hiawatha (Parti.) and lesser choral works, Concertos and 
Double Concertos by Bach and Mozart, and lesser works by Hoist, 
Rimsky- Korsakoff, Delius and Sinigaglia. 

VII. — One development bearing upon the very serious defects in the 
music-reading powers of many music students remains to be mentioned 
here. A so-called " Director's Hour " has been instituted during the 
session in the department to which every student is required to come 
and (whether with instrument or voice) copy in hand, all have to study 
together a series of master-pieces each week, singing or playing and

analysing the work as it proceeds. These " Hours" promise to be a bind- 
ing and significant feature of the corporate musical life of the whole 
department. 

In conclusion I desire to express again the debt the students and I 
together owe to the able and friendly help of the whole Music staff, 
and to the helpers in the Musical Club Committee and others' work. 
This willing help is beyond measurement.

It will be seen from the above list that two substantial donations 
were received during the session. I refer to that of R. W. Genese, Esq., 
M.A., of Tunbridge Wells, for many years Professor of Mathematics at 
this College, who enriched our mathematical library by the addition of 
177 volumes on that subject. The other was that of J. B. Willans, Esq., 
of Dolforgan, Kerry, Mont., whose donation of 377 volumes included 
330 volumes on British and other birds. These volumes include all the 
standard Avorks on bird life in these islands. Mr. Willans made us further 
indebted to him by presenting £40 to the departments of Latin, Greek, 
and Pure Mathematics, £10 of this amount to be spent on binding. 

The report of Miss Cuming, M.A., B.Sc, the Library Cataloguer 
follows.- Reference is made there to the transfer of Miss Cuming and her 
two assistants to the General Library, where I had been in sole charge 
for twenty-two sessions out of thirty-three ; during the last session I 
have been in charge of the Science Library, continuing as before some of 
the duties incidental to my office as Librarian. 

" Since the beginning of the session I have been in charge of the 
General Library. A new system of recording the borrowing of books has 
been put into operation. In conjunction with this a method of reserving 
books on request has been begun and has been vary largely availed of 
by students. The General Library has been open during the session on 
Wednesday afternoons : the attendance has been rather disappointing, 
the average number of readers (including staff) amounting to only 13.9. 



80 



Several minor changes have been made, including a revision of the 
reference books. I should like to draw attention to the classified lists of 
'new books which are prepared every month. 

The books dealt with during the year include those belonging to the 
Zoology and Philosophy Departments, Law Reports and Theological 
works. The accessions include large donations from Prof. Genese and 
Mr. J. B. Willans. The number of volumes dealt with was 4,907, in 
addition to 2,003 accessions. All the periodicals in the General Library 
have been catalogued and arranged and a Register for current periodicals 
has been compiled. 

The Science Library was checked during the Easter vacation. The 
General Library was checked for the first time in the long vacation, 
which resulted in a very long list of missing books. This has since been 
somewhat reduced, but the number of missing books is much too high. 
Three small bookcases have been added at the King Street end of the 
Library, but the problem of space for new books remains very urgent. 

All the parts of the World List of Scientific Periodicals have been 
received and checked during the year. 

I should like to acknowledge the very efficient help of Miss E. M. 
Harris and Miss Nancy Meredith." 

THE ARTS AND CRAFTS GALLERY. 

The Curators. 
(D.R.J. , S.K.G.) 

The gradual growth and development of the collections since their 
re-arrangement last year has now made it possible to place within the reach 
of all students of the College very many excellent examples of recent 
decorative art. The opportunity has also been afforded them of having 
the interest and beauty as well as the particular qualities of the 
technique of the exhibits explained to them personally — a very important 
and necessary innovation for the successful achievement of the purpose 
of our aims. 

Not only has the Gallery been frequently visited by the many students 
who were taking the courses in the Arts and Handicrafts classes at the 
College, but many other students and many of the staff have been 
interested and found pleasure in the " seeing " of these fine examples of 
workmanship now so well displayed. 

The collections have been carefully selected from the point of view of 
illustrating very simple and unaffected work by acknowledged masters 
of their Art, and therefore should be extremely instructive and inspiring 
not only to the special students who are working at these Crafts at the 
College, but should be very useful as well to the students of the Depart- 
ment for the Training of Teachers. It is to these student teachers that a 
knowledge as well as a proper sense of appreciation of these " things of 
beauty " is so essential, so that they may be able to instruct and inspire 
for the welfare of the coming generations. Soon perhaps a small class 
room in every school in Wales might be partially devoted to such a 
purpose as the Gallery — just a few frames at first and a small glazed case 
is all that would be necessary. It would then be possible to arrange 
loans as the permanent collections increased. 

There is no doubt that a marked improvement in design, execution 
and technique has been noticeable in the work produced by the students 
of the Arts and Crafts classes at the College during the year, and this was 
undoubtedly due to the careful study of and the good influence of the 
collections. A long-felt want is now very gradually being provided. 



81 



The Gallery has been open on two mornings in each week during the 
terms — Tuesday and Friday — from 11 a.m. to 1-0 p.m. These days and 
hours were chosen by the representatives of the students. It has also 
been open on special days such as during the Annual Musical Festival, 
and by special appointments on many occasions. 

The four new screens recently purchased have added greatly to the 
hanging capacity of the room and it will be possible to exhibit nearly 100 
additional frames of drawings, prints, etc. The large collection of 
Woodcuts from books, periodicals, etc., purchased last year — and 
illustrating the work of the great period of English illustration of the 
1860's — have nearly all been catalogued. 

During the year the various groups Of the Crafts have been augmented 
considerably, and although the acquisitions have not been so numerous 
quite as previously — many are of great value and importance to the 
growing collections. Additions to the works of Artists already possessed 
have been definitely proceeded with, so that a general idea of certain 
methods aimed for various types of work might be easily grasped and 
properly understood. 

The etchings acquired include rare " states " of " The Minster " 
and "The Palace Farm," by Frederick L. Griggs, A.R.A. This is a 
valuable addition to the fine series already possessed by this artist. 
Among others are seven by a new etcher — Graham Sutherland — The 
"Adam and Eve " and " The Usurers " — the subject ones — are very 
interesting. The remainder being principally of landscapes — of unusual 
treatment. A fine print of the " Richborough " Plate, by Henry 
Rushbury, is also a welcomed addition to the others already possessed by 
this artist. There are also three interesting ones by Bouverie Hoyton — 
" Head of a Jew," " Old Grove Quarry, Beer, Devon," and " Llanberis 
Pass, North Wales," as well as a series of the delightful figure studies 
by Gerald L. Brockhurst. Others are by Edgar Wilson, Alexander 
Walker and S. H. Braitherwill, are all landscape subjects. Several 
Aquatints by Hesketh Hubbard have also been added to the series 
acquired last year. 

A portfolio of ten Woodcuts in colour by the well-known Japanese 
artist working in London — Y. Urushibara — after the landscape designs 
by Frank Brangwyn, R.A.. illustrate quite an original treatment of the 
method of this craft of wood-block cutting and printing. They are a 
welcomed addition to the fine and original prints of the " Stonehenge " 
and the Brangwyn landscape coloured woodcuts already possessed by the 
same artist. The other coloured woodcuts acquired are by Maxwell 
Armfield, and illustrate quite a different method of treatment. The 
subjects are of animals and birds, delightfully drawn and simply coloured — - 
the design, cutting, colouring a,nd printing are all excellent. 

Only two drawings have been bought — the " Chalk Pit," by Graham 
Sutherland, and "A Landscape " by Alexander Walker — both are small 
watercolours and excellent in their way. 

Again some interesting examples of Caligraphy have been added to those 
already executed by the members of the Society of Scribes and Illum- 
inators. These are by Miss Margaret Bartels, and illustrate three 
methods of excellent modern " scribing." The subject being an appeal 
by the " Children of Wales " to the " Children of the World." Writing 
is the most universal of the Arts. How few realise it is an art at all. 
Yet up to the middle of the last century, generally it was well done — 
a traditional art in the hands of Writing-Masters. Since then William 
Morris, Edward Johnston, and Graily Hewitt have been the great 
pioneers of the modern revival and these examples of the modern scribes — 
their disciples — should help each to recognize his own hand- writing as 
an Art — to be improved rather than degraded. 



82 



The additions to the collection of Pottery have been important and 
considerable. Towards the end of last year ten pieces of fine stoneware — 
with their special stands — were selected from an exhibition of the work 
of Reginald F. Wells, held in London. All are especially fine in form, 
colour, and the quality of the glaze. They were fired at his Kiln in Chelsea. 
Since then the Kiln has been destroyed and he has built a new one in 
Sussex. Other pieces of interest include eleven by Miss Frances E. 
Richards, of Highgate, N., and six of stoneware by W. Staite Murray, of 
London — a welcomed addition to his other fine pieces. Two delightful 
figures by Mr. and Mrs. Wilfred Morton, and a stoneware Owl by 
Miss Dora Billington, of the Royal College of Art, complete the list. 

The Craft of the Potter is one that loudly calls for a revival. Where 
suitable clay exists small kilns can easily be built without much cost, 
and so interest in a local pottery be fostered. It is a craft that easily 
lends itself to local expression. It can rapidly become " native." This 
collection, should therefore be very helpful in spreading a knowledge 
and an interest, and so aid in fostering attempts at local revivals of this 
fascinating Art. 

A beginning has been made with the acquisition of books for the 
proposed Library devoted wholly to the Arts and Crafts. Three volumes 
on the " History of Pottery and Porcelain " will be very valuable for 
general reference, and the " Life and Work of Ernest Gimson," by his 
friends William R. Lethaby, Alfred H. Powell and Fredk. L. Griggs, 
will be of great use to all students of the Crafts. It is proposed to 
supplement this side of the collection more fully during the coming 
year. No additions have been made to the modern printed books of the 
private presses or to fine bindings of examples. It is proposed to help 
this side of the collection this year. A special table display case with 
shelf accommodation beneath is much needed for the proper " showing " 
of these books and bindings. 

For the retrospective side of the collection some 18th century Glass 
and Porcelain has been acquired, as well as a fine 17th century brass 
candlestick, bought in Aberystwyth, and an interesting Slip Ware dish 
from Carmarthen. An oak Court Cupboard has kindly been presented 
by Miss Sarah Ellis, of Bank House, Narberth, and an old Carpenter's 
Tool Chest by Mr. Thomas Thomas, of Ceinionfa, Aberystwyth. These 
interesting gifts, it is hoped, will form the nucleus of a collection of 
17th and early 18th century furniture and household treasures, for 
which a special room should be devoted. Very gradually a fine type 
collection should be gathered of Welsh oakwork. 

Towards the end of last year an unusual opportunity occurred at the 
disposal in London of the well known Knowles Collection of Irish Stone 
Implements, etc. A very interesting selection was made and. purchased, 
partly because of the fine craftsmanship shown in the implements and 
partly because these implements lend themselves to comparison with 
implements found in Wales, and may therefore help members of the 
College who are re-searching into problems of Ancient Wales. 

The stone arrow heads of ancient Ireland are of rather characteristic 
type and workmanship, and a choice selection has been obtained ; a set 
of very similar ones from North Cardiganshire bought a few years ago are 
now seen to be almost certainly of Irish origin. 

The basalts of N.E. Ireland lend themselves to grinding for the making 
of stone axes and the purchase includes a set showing various stages in 
the fabrication of a basalt axe ; it comes from a pre-historic axe-factory. 

The purchase includes fine examples of stone daggers and spearheads, 
and is really representative of the craftsmanship of Ireland in the later 
part of the Neolithic Age, and probably at the time when the use of copper, 
if not bronze, was spreading. Many of the finest examples have been 
mounted and are being shown for a time in the Gallery. The others 
will take their place in the permanent collection at the School of Geography 
and Anthropology.

THE MEN'S HOSTEL. 

Warden : Mr. E. D. T. Jenkins. 

As this is the last time that Plynlymon will figure in these reports 
as a Men's Hostel, it is with satisfaction, though a somewhat melancholy 
satisfaction, that I can review the year as a very happy and successful one, 
so far as the life of the students here and their results are concerned. 

The number of students was 40, two of whom had resided here for five 
years. Of the five men taking Honour Examinations, one obtained a 
First Class, three a Second Class, Div. I., and one a Second Class, Div 2, 
while the results generally surpassed the high standard reached in the two 
preceding sessions. 

Many members of the Hostel took a conspicuous part last session in 
College activities, on the playing fields and elsewhere. 

The health of the men was uniformly excellent, medical attendance 
not being required at any time. One student, a freshman, was operated 
on for appendicitis, but made a rapid recovery and passed all his examina- 
tions in June. This satisfactory record in health was no doubt partly 
due to the improvement in accommodation brought about by the 
structural alterations of the session 1923-1924. 

The conduct of the men was consistently good and showed a further 
intelligent advance in their conception of self-government and individual 
responsibility. Distinct evidence was shown in many ways of a good 
corporate feeling in the Hostel. Our thanks are due to Mr. Wright, 
President of the Men's Committee, to Mr. E. G. Bowen, and the other 
members of the Committee, for their help and loyalty throughout the 
year. 

My warm thanks are due to Miss Sproson, our House Keeper, for her 
help, always willingly given, and for her unfailing attention to the comfort 
and well-being of the members of the Hostel. 

It is with deep regret I have to close this report with mention of the 
decision of the Council made on financial grounds, to bring Hostel life 
to an end for men students at Aberystwyth, at any rate for the present. 
During the five years of my Wardenship here a good tradition of com- 
munity life and conduct has gradually grown up, and through the 
vicissitudes natural to such a growth there has emerged a real thing. 
The advantages of residential life, especially in small groups, have 
shown themselves here to be intellectual as well as social, and the feeling 
of sharing a corporate life in work and in play has always been a real 
enjoyment to the men. 

Many former members of the Hostel now holding posts of some 
importance, residential and otherwise, have written me in terms of warm 
appreciation of the years spent here and of the help this community life 
had been to them personally in their careers. I look upon this testimony 
from students whom I have had in the Hostel as the very highest en- 
couragement to the College to embark anew in further years upon a scheme 
of residential life for men students at Aberystwyth, and I look on it also 
as the greatest reward any Warden could hope for. My own work here 
has been a source of great interest and pleasure to me, and speaking 
generally I have found the men both responsive and generous-minded. 

Finally I feel I ought to record my indebtedness to my wife, whose 
help and sympathy during the last few years have been a source of 
great encouragement both to myself and the students, who have always 
regarded her with much affection and esteem.

HALLS OF RESIDENCE FOR WOMEN STUDENTS. 

Senior Warden : Miss C. P. Tremain. 

The health of the women students has been exceptionally good through- 
out the session. 

The unusually high percentage of examination successes among the 
resident women students is a striking testimony to the advantage of the 
College of keeping up the standard of entrance to the Halls which, 
introduced with the full approval of the College Senate during the years 
of unprecedented expansion, has been maintained up to the present. 

For the session 1925-1926 the number of fifth year students who have 
not yet completed their degrees will be much smaller than usual, and there 
will be none of more senior years — this is explained by the fact that most 
of the resident students due to graduate this year have done so. 

The numbers at the close of the present session are as follows : — 
Alexandra Hall . . . . 185 

Carpenter Hall . . . . 55 

Treathro . . . . . . 11 

Mynachty 23 Total 274. 

As far as the numbers for next session can be approximately given a 
slight decrease seems likely, and it is probable that only one of the two 
houses used this session as overflows will be needed. 

Alexandra Hall will be used for three weeks in August for a Summer 
School in Library Service, and for a few days during those weeks a small 
number of members of the British Ecological Society will also be in 
residence. 

A certain amount of much-needed repairs to the hot-water apparatus 
is in progress — unfortunately only part of the necessary work has been 
sanctioned so that a good deal is left to be carried out next session. 

The front of Alexandra Hall and Carpenter Hall are also in process of 
painting. 

The Halls are fortunate in retaining, in their various capacities, the able 
services of Miss Macgregor, Warden of Carpenter Hall, who has been 
continuously connected with the Halls since 1909 with the exception of 
three years when engaged in War Service, Miss Turner, who has 
occupied her present post for eight years, and Miss Bedson for six years. 

Of their loyalty, efficiency, and helpfulness to the students and to the 
Senior Warden it is impossible to speak too highly.

has been maintained. Lieut. E. R. Harries, M.C., who came into the Corps 
when it was short of officers, left Aberystwyth early in the session, 
but Lieut. C. W. Davies and Lieut. M. A. H. Tincker have been gazetted 
to the Corps, and were present in camp this year. All three gentlemen are 
thanked for their loyal support. 

The main objects of the Corps are : — 

(A) To give cadets a general military training and to prepare them for 
what are called the "A" and "B" Certificates. These certificates 
are valuable in two ways : — 

(1) They are essential to Cadets desirous of taking Commissions. 

in the Territorial Army. 

(2) They have definite mark value to students who are anxious 
to enter the Royal Navy or Regular Army. In this connection 
it may be stated that Officer-Cadet W. B. C. Cooper-Evans 
obtained a second place in a recent examination for Royal 
Naval Paymasters, special arrangements having been made 
for him to take Certificate "A'» early in the session. 

(B) The Corps offers a unique opportunity for students of the College 
to meet students of the sister Universities in general sports, as 
games and athletics form an essential part of the programme of 
training. This year in competition with Bristol, Birmingham, 
Liverpool, Manchester, Nottingham, Reading and Sheffield, the 
Contingent gained the " soccer " championship and finished fourth 
in the whole tournament. The tug-of-war team reached the final, 
being beaten by Reading after a wel] fought contest. 

Officer Cadet L. S. Howell finished second in the cross country run. 

Special Training. 

An important event in the past session has been the revival of the 
special week-end training. Fifty-three Cadets returned to Aberystwyth 
three days before the commencement of the summer term and a con- 
siderable amount of work was done under the able guidance of Capt. 
Killick, D.S.O., M.C., Adjutant of the Birmingham and Bristol Con- 
tingents. 

Annual Report. 

The general efficiency of the Corps is best indicated by the following 
extracts taken from the reports received from the War Office : — 
"A small but good contingent." 

" The training is evidently carried out on sound lines/' 



AGRICULTURE. 



Professor J. J. Griffith. 

I have to report that the work done in the Agricultural Department 
during the past session has been, on the whole, similar to that of previous 
years. 

The number of students attending the various courses was as follows : — 



Degree Course : 1st Year . . . . . . . . 5 

2nd Year 3 

3rd Year 5 

4th Year . . t 4 

Postgraduate (Research) . . * . . . . . . 4 

Diploma in Agriculture : 1st Year . . . . . . 4 

2nd Year 7 

3rd Year 3 

Short Course in Agriculture . . . . . . . . 50 

Continuation Course in Agriculture . . . . . . 19 

Diploma Course in Dairying : 1st Year . . . . 8 

2nd Year . . . . 6 

Special Course in Agricultural Subjects (1 term) . . 4 

Practical Course in Dairying . . . . . . . . 6 

Ten Weeks Course in Dairying and House Manage- 
ment 32 



The majority of students attending the various classes made very 
satisfactory progress with their work throughout the session. A few 
of the members of the elementary classes failed to profit much by the 
courses of instruction provided for them, due to the fact that they had 
not been sufficiently prepared to pursue a course of study in Agricultural 
Science. Very good work was done by practically all members of the 
Diploma classes. Most of the degree students of the Department did 
exceedingly well in both the College and the University examinations. 
It must be noted, however, that both their work and their examination 
results were, speaking generally, much less satisfactory in Agriculture 
than in the Pure Science subjects included in their Scheme of Study. 
This has really been very noticeable for some years. It appears to be due 
mainly to the fact that students find it necessary to concentrate their 
attention on the subject which they intend to pursue up to the Honours 
stage. At present, there is no Honours Course in Agriculture, and 
consequently the quality of the work in this subject is not up to what can 
possibly be considered as a satisfactory standard. Arrangements have 
been made recently to enable Agricultural students to take Honours 
Courses partly in the Applied Sciences which are closely connected with 
Agriculture. It is admitted that this is a step in the right direction, 
but an Honours Course in Agriculture itself appears to be essential in 
order to make it possible for the training in Agriculture to be as efficient 
as it is in other subjects. 

There were only two students taking the Final Degree Examinations, 
and both of them satisfied the Examiners. Several students who had 
completed their Agricultural Course last year secured very good positions 
in the Honours Examinations in other subjects. Two were placed in the 
First Class in Chemistry and Agricultural Biochemistry, one secured 
First Class in Economics and another obtained a Second Class in Zoology. 

Miss Dorothy Kenyon completed the examination for the National 
Diploma in Agriculture. 

Six former students of the Department were awarded the M.Sc. degree 
of the University of Wales. Another former student was recently 
appointed Adviser in Agricultural Chemistry at Reading University. 



87 



During the Lent Term, a Conference was arranged between the members 
of the Staff of the Agricultural Department and the Agricultural Organisers 
of the counties included in the College Area, in order to link up the teaching 
and research work of the Department with the work of the Organisers 
in the various counties. 

A very successful Mole Draining Demonstration was held at the College 
Farm. This was attended by the staff and students of the Department, 
and a very large number of the farmers of the district.- 

Other special features of the session were the address of Lord Bledisloe 
at the Annual Meeting of our Agricultural Society, and the visit subse- 
quently arranged for a pa^ty of past and present students to view the 
Bledisloe Farms at Lydney. 

In conclusion, I wish to express my appreciation* of the valuable 
services rendered to the Department by Mr. Phillips and other members 
of the staff. 

AGRICULTURAL CHEMISTRY. 

Mr. T. W. Fagan. 

The total number of students attending the different 
the past session was as follows : — 

Degree (Honours Chemistry with Agricultural 

Chemistry) 
Degree (Final) . . ..... 

Diploma Course : 1st Year 

2nd and 3rd Year 
Diploma in Dairying : 1st Year 
*2nd Year 
Short Course in Agriculture 
Continuation Course in Agriculture 
* Special Course 

* One student included in both. 

The work of the Degree students generally has been very satisfactory . 
Two of the three students presenting themselves for examination in 
Honours Chemistry with Agricultural Chemistry were placed in Class 1 
and the third in Class II, Division 1. 

All taking the Final Course were successful in their examinations. 

The work of the 1st Year students, taking the Certificate and the 
Diploma Courses was of an uneven character. This was largely due to 
the fact that some had taken Chemistry at School, whereas to the 
remainder the subject was new. 

Of the 2nd and 3rd Year Diploma students, four completed their 
course in Chemistry for the College Diploma in Agriculture, and five for 
the College Diploma in Dairying. The students taking the Short Course 
worked well and were particularly keen, about 40 per cent, returning for 
the Continuation Course. 

During the session, Mr. R. O. Davies, of this Department, with the 
valuable assistance of Miss Myfanwy Evans, the Senior Instructress in 
Dairying, undertook the Bacteriological and Chemical examination of 
milk samples in connection with a Clean Milk Competition organised by the 
Brecon and Radnor (Joint) Agricultural Education Committee. This 
being the first competition of its kind organised in Wales, an opportunity 
was afforded, for the first time, of studying both from a bacteriological and 
chemical point of view the quality of milk samples from different 
localities in the College area. 

The results of Mr. Davies and Miss Evans' investigation are embodied 
in a report published by the Joint Agricultural committee and are to form 
the basis of an article upon the subject of Clean Milk to be published 
in the next Volume of the Welsh Journal of Agriculture. While the

competition was proceeding, advantage was taken of the facilities it 
offered for initiating the more advanced students of the Department into 
the intricacies of the work entailed and proved of special educational 
value to those attending the course in Agricultural Biochemistry 

The research work carried out in the Department makes steady progress 
and valuable data on the nutritive value of grasses and clovers is slowly 
being gathered. In connection with this work, I desire to express to 
Professor Stapledon and his Staff my sincere appreciation of their never 
failing help and valuable criticism. 

A brief resume of the work is as follows : — 

(a) To determine the difference, if any, in the chemical composition 
of hay harvested from fields enclosed at different dates. 

(b) To compare the chemical composition of indigenous and com- 
mercial varieties of the same grasses as pasture, hay and 
aftermath. 

(c) A similar investigation to (b) with different nationalities of 
clover. 

(d) An investigation into the chemical composition of pure strains 
of grasses and clovers grown under field conditions (to be 
continued for a number of years), duplicate plots being under 
different systems of management. 

In conclusion, I wish to place on record my great indebtednes to my 
colleague, Mr. R. O. Davies, for his wholehearted and loyal support 
throughout the session.

AGRICULTURAL BOTANY. 

Professor R. G. Stapledon. 
The following courses were given in the Department and were attended 



by the number of students stated : — 

Degree . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 5 

Agricultural Diploma : 1st Year . . . . . . 9 

2nd Year 4 

Dairy Diploma : 1st Year . . . . . . . . 9

Short Course in Agriculture (Michaelmas Term) . . 50 

Continuation Course (Lent Term) . . . . . . 19 

Special Course . . . . . . . . . . . , 1 



The average quality of the work did not reach a high standard, and this 
unfortunately was particularly noticeable in respect of the students 
taking the degree course. For the first time for a number of years there 
were no agricultural students also taking Honours in Pure Botany 
conducting research in the Department. Mr. J. G. Davies, B.Sc, holding 
a scholarship from the Department of Industrial and Scientific Research, 
however, continued his investigations relative to Cocksfoot largely under 
my supervision, and has well maintained the research standard set by 
honours students during the past years. 

I am again under an obligation to Miss Sampson, M.Sc, and Mr. Tincker, 
M.A., M.Sc, for the thorough manner in which they have served the 
interests of the Department. 

Miss Sampson continues her researches on methods of treating cereal 
seeds against Bunt and Smut, and on the relation of the various Smuts 
to different varieties of the chief cereals. Mr. Tincker has further 
developed his work on the effect of duration of day light on the flowering 
and fruiting of plants. 



89 



I am indebted to Mr. W. Davies, M.Sc, for lectures he has given to 
students in the Department on Grasses and Clovers. 

Mr. D. W. Davies, B.Sc., the Adviser in Mycology, has again rendered 
assistance with a course of lectures to the Continuation Course Students, 
and he continues to bring the College into close and harmonious contact 
with the counties by the efficient manner in which he performs his 
advisory functions.

WELSH PLANT BREEDING STATION. 

Director : Professor R. G. Stapledon. 
As in past seasons large parties of Welsh farmers have visited the 
Station, and it has again been a pleasure to welcome investigators from 
the Dominions and Foreign Countries. Early in July five of the 
Development Commissioners paid a visit of inspection to the Station, 
and during August the British Ecological Society held their Summer 
Meeting at Aberystwyth, and spent a day seeing the work in progress 
at the Station. 

The equipment at the farm has been further strengthened by the 
erection of (1) a large cereal cage ; (2) a bee-proof cage for clover 
hybridization; (3) a greenhouse, and (4) numerous small insect and 
pollen proof cages. 

Important re-arrangements have been made during the session relative 
to the supervision of the farm. Capt. Williams, who had been good enough 
to look after the farm from the commencement, owing to the increasing 
calls made on his time by his own researches, found it necessary to leave 
the farm last September. Mr. J. W. Watkins, formerly in charge of the 
Gardens only, has now been appointed Superintendent of the Farm and 
Gardens, and is in residence at Frongoch. 

I desire to place on record how much the Station owes to Capt. Williams 
for his invaluable assistance relative to the farm during the period of his 
residence there, and it is not too much to say that the plan on which 
the cropping of the farm is now conducted and the arrangements made for 
the conduct of the experiments is chiefly due to the thought and detailed 
attention which Capt. Williams has given to the matter. 

Mr. A. R. Beddows, B.Sc, was appointed to the staff of the Station 
as assistant research worker at the commencement of the session. 

I regret to have to report that Miss Grice resigned her appointment 
during the session, and this has entailed a certain amount of re- 
organization with reference to the supervision of the technical assistants. 

Capt. Williams and Mr. W. Davies are to be congratulated upon 
obtaining the degree of M.Sc. (Wales), with theses based on the result 
of researches conducted at the Station. 

It is a pleasure again to place on record sincere appreciation of the 
untiring and able endeavours of the research staff. Mr. T. J. Jenkin, 
M.Sc, is advancing steadily with his important genetical work on the 
grasses — he gave a short account of some of his results to the Botanical 
Section at the meeting of the British Association. Capt. Williams, 
M.Sc, makes promising progress with his work on Red Clover. The 
genetical work with Oats in the hands of Mr. E. T. Jones, B.Sc, becomes 
increasingly interesting as the years advance, while Mr. Martin Jones, B.Sc. 
continues to study yield and other problems connected with this crop. 



90 



Considerable advances have been made with the general work on 
grassland, and Mr. W. Davies, M.Sc, has now set up an important series 
of trials at a number of centres in the counties. 

Miss K. Sampson, M.Sc, amd Mr. D. W. Davies, B.Sc, continue 
to render invaluable assistance relative to problems connected with 
plant diseases, and Mr. M. A. H. Tincker, M.A., M.Sc, is co-operating 
with the staff of the Station relative to a number of physiological problems. 
The Station is also working in close co-operation with Mr. T. W. Fagan, 
M.A. (Advisory Chemist) in important chemical work on the nutritive 
value of grasses, and with Mr. J. R. W. Jenkins, M.Sc. (Advisory 
Entomologist) with reference to the insect pests of the clovers. 

Thanks to arrangements made with the National Library, for which 
the Station is under a particular debt of gratitude to Mr. J. Ballinger, 
M.A., C.B.E., greatly increased facilities have been afforded for keeping 
in touch with foreign literature. This has added considerably to the 
amount of translating work which falls to Miss R. Jones, B.A., and 
it is largely owing to her invaluable help that the research staff are kept 
in touch with all the investigations proceeding elsewhere. 

I am again indebted to Mr. J. O. Parry -Williams for continued help 
in connection with parties visiting the Station, and for the care with which 
he has kept the accounts of the Station. 

The following papers have been published by the staff of the Station : —

BOOK-KEEPING. 

Mr. J. L. Newbon. 

This class was attended by 15 Agricultural and Dairy Diploma students, 
and 23 Continuation Course students. The elementary principles of the 
subject were fully explained and illustrated, and the written work of the 
students showed that the majority were able to apply the principles 
taught when dealing with practical questions. 

Special instruction was given to two students taking 'he National 
Diploma in Agriculture Examination and both were successful in passing. 



91 



DAIRYING. 

Miss D. Myfanwy Evans. 

The number of students taking courses in Dairying during the session 
1924-25 was as follows : — 

1st Year Diploma in Dairying . . . . . . 8 

2nd Year Diploma in Dairying . . . . . . 6 

Ten Weeks Course in Dairying and House Manage- 
ment . . 29 

Practical Course in Dairying . . . . . . . . 6 

Five students were awarded the College Diploma in Dairying and two 
the Certificate in Dairying. In addition, two old students, Miss Esther 
Ann Evans and Miss Vena Bebb, have been successful in gaining the 
National Diploma in Dairying, and one, Miss Bebb, the British Dairy 
Farmers' Diploma, with Silver Medal. The work of the students 
throughout the session was on the whoie satisfactory. 

In view of the fact that the Merionethshire Education Authority 
have appointed a full-time Instructress in Dairying and Poultry Manage- 
ment, I was not called upon to conduct any lectures in that County as 
in previous years. 

During the Michaelmas and Lent Terms, I assisted in the Department 
of Agricultural Chemistry with the Bacteriological tests of milk samples 
received from Brecon and Radnor in connection with Clean Milk Com- 
petitions. 



DOMESTIC SCIENCE. 

Miss N. Fisher. 

The Domestic Science Department at No. 9, Marine Terrace, has been 
carried on quite successfully during the last year. 

It is encouraging to note that the number of students taking the 
course has not diminished, 41 for Combined Dairy and Household 
Management and 1 private student took Domestic Science. 

There is still place for many more, and those who have the welfare 
of Domestic Science at heart, feel that could we get into touch with the 
parents to impress upon them the importance of this training and what 
the possession of this knowledge will really mean to the future of these 
young girls, one feels convinced there would be no necessity for a con- 
tinual appeal. 

The Department is now open to the public, Mondays, Tuesdays and 
Thursdays. We hope by this arrangement that all who are interested 
will take the opportunity of seeing for themselves the advantages 
offered to students taking these short courses.

93 



MEN'S HOSTEL. 

It has been found necessary owing to financial stringency to close the- 
Men's Hostel as from the end of last session. This possibility was 
mentioned at the Spring Meeting of the Court. Every consideration was 
given to the various suggestions made regarding the future running of 
the building as a Hostel, but the Council felt that none of the schemes 
would ensure the proposition being made self-supporting. 

SPECIAL LECTURES. 

Public lectures were delivered during the session by the following : — 

Principal L. B. Jacks, of Oxford, six lectures. 
Professor C. K. Webster, M.A., five lectures. 
Sydney Herbert, Esq., M.A., one lecture. 
Professor C. G. Barkla, of Edinburgh, one lecture. 
Dr. Alf. Sommerfelt, of Oslo, three lectures. 
Professor L. Collet, of Geneva, one lecture. 

COURSES OF INSTRUCTION IN LAW. 

The Special Courses for Articled Clerks were again conducted at Rhyl, 
in co-operation with the University College of North Wales, Bangor. 

SUMMER SCHOOL. 

The College Buildings and Alexandra Hall were used during part of' 
the Summer Vacation by the National Library Authorities in connection 
with their Summer School of Library Service. 

COLLEGE FINANCES. 

The audited Statement of Accounts of the College for the year ended 
30th of June, 1925, shows a surplus of £397 13s. 6d. The accounts of the 
various Halls of Residence shew a surplus in each case, but after taking 
into consideration the facts referred to in the Auditors' Report, the 
accounts of the Men's Hostel show a deficit on the year's working. 

In accordance with a resolution passed by the University Council the 
balance on Sinking Fund Account has been transferred to Accumulated 
Deficits Account, and the result of this will be that the amount paid, 
in respect of Bank Interest on current account will be reduced.

EXTRACT FROM THE LATE MR. W. E. GLADSTONE'S 
SPEECH AT NOTTINGHAM. 

The Times of September 28th, 1877. 

Let me point to another case with which I am personally 
acquainted, to show you that wherever primary education is 
loved, the higher education must be loved and taught also. 
I speak of the country of Wales, in which I have the happiness 
to spend a large portion of my time ; and there is no part of 
the population of the country — and I say it freely and boldly 
in your hearing — there are few parts which can compete with 
Wales, and there is no part which can exceed it, from one end 
of the island to the other, in the earnest, ardent, and, I may 
say, passionate love for instruction. They are a religious 
people, and a people deeply enamoured of knowledge, and 
what they have done has been done with very little assistance. 
With no assistance at all from any public fund of any kind, 
they have, within the last five or six years, founded a large 
and important College at Aberystwyth. Is it possible for you 
to have a stronger proof that the existence of a love for primary 
education does lead on, and must lead on, to every great effort 
for the establishment of higher education ?

Legacy the receipt of the Treasurers, for the time being, of

FORM OF BEQUEST OF RESIDUE, OR SHARE OF 
RESIDUE. 

I give and bequeath all (or if so intended one equal share 
of) the residue of such part of my personal estate as I may 
lawfully bequeath for charitable purposes unto the Treasurers, 
for the time being, of the University College of Wales, Aber- 
ystwyth, for the purposes of the said College, and I direct that 
the receipt of such Treasurers shall be a sufficient discharge for 
the same.

At the Elementary stage distinct promise was shown by Mr. W. T. J. 
Elias and Mr. R. G. Rees, and the former has qualified to sit the Inter- 
mediate in September. I am sorry that Mr. Rees is leaving the Classics 
at this stage in order to devote himself to Law. 

The Intermediate Class was larger than it has been for many years 
and contained several good students, but there were five defections in the 
course of the Session, of students who on account of all round weakness 
decided to give up Greek for the time being. While this may occasionally 
be justified in the case of particular students, and once only, an annual 
habit is apt to become established, with the result that the Intermediate 
Class generally contains a few apparently ' hopeless ' cases — hopeless 
because these students themselves periodically give up hope a few 
months before the time of the examination. With one exception all who 
actually sat were successful and the papers of Mr. G. Rhys Williams were 
very creditable. 

The one Subsidiary candidate was awarded an Intermediate, the one 
Final candidate failed. 

One of the two first year Honours students, Mr. B. Osborne, who at 
one time had shown good promise, had an unfortunate breakdown in 
health and is now withdrawing from College altogether. 

Mr. E. S. Loveday was the one Honours candidate presented this year 
by the University of Wales and was awarded a Class II Div. 2. He is one 
of the keenest students that I have met, is genuinely interested in 
Greek and in Ancient Philosophy and hopes to continue his studies after 
leaving College. 

I have on two previous occasions drawn attention to intelligent and 
unintelligent methods of studying a Set Book. Herein lies the whole 
crux of the problem of the Classics. Composition and Unprepared 



50 



Translation depend in the last resort on the mental effort expended on 
the Greek Text by the learner himself and these are the only subjects, as 
proved in examinations, that cannot be prepared by cramming. 
Translations and even annotated editions as ordinarily used are positively 
injurious. Until this is realised, scholarship cannot be said to have a 
starting point, while the claims made for Classics cannot be made good. 

Once more I express my thanks to Miss Woodward, Professor Rosa 
and Mr. P. K. Baillie Reynolds, Lecturer in Ancient History, for the 
valuable help they have given me throughout the Session, also to Professor 
Bensly, who for the greater part of two terms gave instruction in Textual 
Criticism to the more advanced students. 

The Head of the Department has continued to help in the production 
of the new Welsh version of the Greek Testament, and Corinthians I is 
now ready for the Press. He has also undertaken to review for a learned 
journal a new text of Aristides. 

The Library grant was found more than usually inadequate last Session 
and as a result many important books remain unbought. One hopes that 
it may be possible soon to increase the amount allocated to this Depart- 
ment.

(1) Not counting those who entered but did not appear for 
examination (4) 

(2) One student failed Subsidiary but was granted Intermediate. 
These figures do not include passes obtained in Supplementary 

examinations. 

This year has seen a new departure in the teaching of Latin. At the 
request of several departments, a " Modified " Intermediate course was 
instituted, in which students substitute for the usual examination in Latin 
prose questions in Ancient Civilization. The result of this is shown 
separately in the accompanying list. The rather high percentage oi 



5i 



failures indicates that it is not an easier substitute for Intermediate, but 
simply a concession to able students who are weak on the linguistic side. 
The instruction in this course has been chiefly in the hands of Mr. Baillie 
Reynolds, who has this year continued to do excellent work. Of the 
older members of the Department I can only repeat what I have said in 
former years as to their diligence and efficiency. Professor Bensly has 
been hampered by ill-health, and in consequence was able to do less than 
usual in the matter of public lectures. 

The two candidates for Honours took a respectable class under trying 
circumstances. Miss Jones wrote under the strain of a recent bereave- 
ment ; Mr. Thomas was in poor health, as a result of over-strenuous work. 
The Final candidates have done reasonably well, the Subsidiaries ex- 
cellently. Several of them begin Honours next year. 

Outside the College, Mr. Reynolds has been appointed Resident 
Archaeologist for the excavations at Caerhun, to be carried out during 
the summer under the general direction of Dr. Mortimer Wheeler. This 
direct connection of the Department with Welsh Archaeology will, I am 
certain, be gratifying to the College generally, since it continues the 
honourable tradition of Aberystwyth in this matter (see for instance the 
reports of the Department of Geography and Anthropology). A number 
of lectures have been delivered and papers read to societies and other 
bodies in and out of Aberystwyth, including the Cardiganshire Antiquarian 
Society, the British Association, the Cambridge Philological Society, the 
Classical Association (whose local branch continues to go forward in a 
modest way, and has been able this year to contribute to funds for the 
excavations at Caerleon and other desirable objects), and the Folk-Lore 
Society. Relations with other departments remain as cordial as ever. 

Publication for various reasons has been somewhat delayed, but the 
following works have appeared : —

Clarendon Press, Oxford and London, 1926.

ENGLISH. 

Professor J. W. H. Atkins. 

The numbers of students attending the English Classes this year were 
approximately the same as those of last year. They are still very high ; 
and owing to the size of the classes it is still impossible to do as much essay 
work as is realty necessary, especially at the lower stages. It is therefore 
my duty to point out once again that further assistance is urgently needed, 
if we are to cope successfully with this side of the work. 

I am glad to record that Mr. D. C. Davies, a former student, has 
recently been appointed Assistant Lecturer in English at the University 
College of North Wales, Bangor ; also that Mr. Odon Schram has had his 
University Fellowship renewed for a third year. Mr. Schram hopes in the 
coming year to complete his work on " the Place-names of Norfolk," and 
will then submit it for publication under the auspices of the English Place- 
Name Society. 

At the University examination in June, Mrs. Margaret E. Wildblood 
(n^e Morgan) and Mr. T. W. Jenkins were both awarded the degree of 
M.A., the former for a dissertation entitled " Some aspects of the English 
post-war novel," the latter for one entitled, " The influence of German 
thought in English literature of the first half of the 19th Century." 

The Second Year Honours Class this year once again attained a 
distinctly high standard and some highly creditable results were obtained 
at the University examination. Three students were placed in the First 
Class, viz. : Miss Violet Watson, D. Gwilym James and Ed. John Shannon. 
Sixteen students obtained Second Classes, ten being placed in Class II, 
Division I, and six in Class II, division II ; while the remaining three 
students were placed in the Third Class. Of the First Class students, 
both Mr. James and Mr. Shannon propose to devote themselves next year 
to work of a research kind. 

Of the First Year Honours students all except two were successful in 
completing a satisfactory year's work and will therefore proceed next 
session to the higher stages of their Honours Course. 

The work of the Pass Students was on the whole rather above the 
average and at all stages satisfactory work was done. 

Co-operation with other departments of study continues, and I grate- 
fully acknowledge the valuable assistance given at the Honours' Stage by 
Professor Barbier and Mr. David Evans. The former lectured on French 
tragedy with special reference to Corneille and Racine, the latter on 
German tragedy with special reference to Schiller and Goethe ; and both 
courses were highly appreciated. 

I wish once more to express my sense of indebtedness to Miss Win- 
stanley and Mr. Garmonsway for their invaluable help during the Session.

WELSH LITERATURE. 

Professor T. Gwynn Jones. 

The work of the Department, during the latter part of the Session, 
was facilitated by the provision of a private room which it is possible to 
use as a class-room, and by the transference to the Department of a num- 
ber of duplicate copies of books bequeathed to the College. It is hoped 
that during the next session arrangements can be made further to extend 
the use of unpublished material for study. A very satisfactory level 
of performance was attained by the students taking the courses (Final 
and Honours) during the session. Mr. Iorwerth Williams, who obtained 
first class Honours in the subject two years ago, has now been awarded 
the Degree of M.A. with distinction, also obtaining the degree of LL.B. 
The degree of M.A. was also awarded to three other students who submitted 
theses in the Department this session. Miss Enid Griffith, B.A., who 
held a studentship during the session, has done excellent work in pursuing 
under the direction of the Department, the study of Vaticinatory 
material in Welsh, with its relation to English material. 

During the session, some lectures were provided on literary subjects, 
at the request of a number of students. The class was well-attended 
and much enthusiasm and capacity were shown. It is intended to 
continue the class next session. Classes in special subjects have been 
attended by students interested, although not pursuing a course in 
Literature. The Head of the Department was asked to continue during 
the session to act as chairman of the local group engaged in translating 
portions of the New Testament, under the scheme organised by the 
Theological Section of the Guild of Graduates. A revised version of 
ist Corinthians has just been completed. A collection of Greek and 
Latin Epigrams, selected with an Introduction by Professor Rose, and 
translated by the Head of the Department is about to be issued. Other 
publications of the Department include : — " Welsh Poetic Art : A Review" 
(Cymmrodorion Publications, 1926); " Lien Cymru." 

(a new anthology of prose and verse, in course of publication) ; Historical 
Introduction to " Rhwng Doe a Heddiw," an anthology of Welsh 
Lyrics, published by Hughes and Son, Wrexham. The University Press 
Board also announce the immediate issue of " Gwaith Tudur Aled," 
edited by the Head of the Department. The generous co-operation 
and assistance of the Head of the Language Department is thankfully 
acknowledged.

Intermediate. — This class, which included some students from the 
Music Department, contained some members whose work showed con- 
siderable promise. The work done during the session and in the 
examinations was on the whole quite satisfactory. Some students 
who were rather weak at the beginning of the year, made rapid progress 
and succeeded in passing the examination in June. Two of the best 
students, Miss Elizabeth Morgan and Miss Annie M. Harris, passed 
Further Test. 

Subsidiary. — Although there were some excellent students in this 
class, the work done by several members was somewhat disappointing. 
Miss Margaret Ellis and Miss Myfanwy Rees (the latter being a first 
year student) deserve special mention for the outstanding merit of their 
work. 

Final. — This class, as in previous years, included some First Year 
Honours students, whose work during the session and in the June examina- 
tions promised well for next year. The three best students were Miss 
Beti Lloyd Roberts, Miss C. B. Hewitt and Mr. Thomas Gwynn Jones. 

Honours. — The four students who took the Second Year Honours 
course this session worked with great enthusiasm, and their performance 
bore out the promise shown last year. Mr. Evan D. Jones (Llangeitho), 
gained a well-deserved First Class, and Miss May Evans, whose work 
throughout the course had been of very high quality, was also placed 
in the First Class. The two other students, Miss Annie Price and Miss 
Daisy Walters, whose performance from the beginning had been of 
uniformly high grade, were placed in the First Division of the Second 
Class. 

A former student of the Department, Mr. Arthur ap Gwynn, B.A., 
who has recently been appointed to a post on the staff of the Cardiff 
Free Library, presented a thesis for the Degree of M.A., and the degree 
was awarded to him by the Board of Examiners, the work being highly 
commended by the assessors. Four other former students of the Depart- 
ment qualified for the Degree of M.A. in the Department of Welsh Litera- 
ture.

Mr. D. James Jones, B.A., who obtained First Class Honours in the 
the Department three years ago, won the Chair at the National Eistedd- 
fod, Swansea, this summer. 

I wish to acknowledge the invaluable help rendered again this 
Session to the Department by Professor Gwynn Jones, and it is with 
pleasure that I place on record my sincere thanks to him for his goodwill 
and support. 

FRENCH. 

Professor J. L. Andre Barbier. 

The work of the Department was conducted on the usual lines and 
good results were obtained. The system adopted several years ago 
of group teaching and tutorial work proved again its great value not 
only for imparting a sound knowledge of a modern language and litera- 
ture, but for the general development of the students' intelligence. 
The External Examiner was struck by the keenness and alertness of 
mind shown by the candidates at the Final and Honours examinations. 
At the same time, it involves a considerable demand for time and energy 
on the part of the small staff of the department. I beg to point out 
also that better accommodation is urgently needed for seminar and 
tutorial work ; the present room at No. 12, Marine Terrace, is extremely 
inconvenient and inadequate. 

Forty-one students attended the Intermediate course ; thirty-two 
took the degree examination and twenty-one passed. Thirty-eight 
students pursued the Subsidiary course ; all took the degree examination, 
and thirty-three passed. Twenty-seven students pursued the Final course; 
of these, fifteen were Pass students, fourteen taking the degree examina- 
tion and eight passing ; the other twelve were pursuing also the first 
year of the Honours course. 

Eight students pursued the second year of the Honours course ; 
they were all successful at the degree examination, two being placed in 
the first class, three in the first division and three in the second division 
of the second class. In addition, they were all granted the Certificate of 
Oral Proficiency. 

Eight Students were granted travelling scholarships at the end of 
last session and spent a large part of the summer vacation in France. 
Eleven have just been awarded travelling scholarships and arrangements 
have been made for them to go abroad this summer. The enormous benefit 
derived from these scholarships, not only by individual students, but 
by the whole Department, is well known and our deep gratitude is 
due to the generous donors who made it possible to establish them. 

Mr. Gareth R. V. Jones, who secured a first class in the Honours 
list last June had some time previously obtained a Trinity Modern Lan- 
guage Exhibition of £65 at Cambridge, where he will be in residence 
next session. 

Mr. Thomas* John Thomas, an old student of the College, presented in 
June a dissertation on James Howell and his relation to France, the 
French language and literature, which was approved by the Examiners, 
who recommended that he be admitted to the degree of M.A. 

Mr. J. Darbelnet, Licencie' es Lettres (Paris), was appointed last 
summer part time Assistant in the French Department for the session 
1925-26. He has just obtained the Diplonie d'etudes superieures de 
lettres of the University of Paris, cum laude. To him, as well as to Dr. 
A. B. Thomas and Miss E. M. Phillips, I wish to express my gratitude for 
their loyal and valuable help during this session.

Phonetics. 

Dr. A. B. Thomas. 

Series of lectures were delivered to a class of 53 students from the 
language departments. A number of these students who took a particular 
interest in the subject visited the laboratory where the action of the 
Kymograph and its accessories, the uses of resonators and of the artifi- 
cial palate were explained and demonstrated to them. 

Practical classes were held for French Pronounciation and Intona- 
tion and the use of the I.P.A. Phonetic Alphabet. 

The sessional examination was taken by 32 students. 

During the session I visited the Laboratories for Experimental Phone- 
tics of the University College, Gower Street, London. The Director, 
Mr. Stephen Jones, B.Sc, gave me demonstrations on several pieces 
of apparatus and was exceedingly kind and helpful. 

My Department has added to its apparatus a Laryngoscope and I have 
spent some time in learning to manipulate it. Mr. W. R. Allen of the 
Music Department has shown a keen interest in this apparatus which I 
have demonstrated to him. I wish to thank the College Dramatic Society 
for the loan of their " spot light " for this purpose. 

I wish also to thank Professor Parry- Williams and Mr. Iorwerth Peate 
for their help. With their collaboration I was able to oblige M. l'abbe 
Millet of Paris, with records of the combination of " stop " and " nasal 
consonant " in Welsh. 



Further development of the department will require a larger room 
for apparatus and an annual grant. At present there is no provision 
for a maintenance grant, and, but for the self-sacrifice of the Physics and 
Chemistry Departments, no practical work could have been done. We 
intend holding a Summer School in Phonetics next year.

GERMAN. 

Mr. David Evans. 

The work of the whole Department for last session has been very 
satisfactory. The number of students in the Arts and Science classes 
is increasing. All classes have been attended regularly and on the 
whole better and more consistent work has been done. 

The Honours class this session was the best for many years and 
the three candidates were placed in the First Class. They had worked 
conscientiously through the wide course in language, historical grammar, 
and literature, and all their papers bore evidence of real knowledge and 
ability. 



57 



The Final Class had two outstanding students in Mr. G. V. Jones 
(Barry), and Miss Shelley. Mr. Jones was placed First Class in the 
French Honours list and was awarded a scholarship in Modern languages 
at Trinity College. Cambridge. He is a student of marked linguistic 
gifts and his grasp of the German language was remarkable after only 
four years study. Two students failed to satisfy the examiners. 

The Subsidiary class was quite satisfactory and all five passed 
the examination. 

Eleven students passed the Intermediate examination and six will 
sit in September. 

Dr. R. Haferkorn proved a wholly admirable assistant, an excellent 
worker, both in the lecture room and in his own private research. During 
his stay here he published several articles in German periodicals and 
his work here on Percy's Reliques and on Middle English and Middle 
Welsh prophetic literature will appear this summer. While in Aber- 
ystwyth he deepened his knowledge of the Welsh language and made 
lists of Welsh place-names for his old professor, Dr. Forster, of Munich 
University. I have made arrangements with Dr. Jensen, of Marburg 
University, to come as his successor for next session. 

I wish again to record the most valuable assistance given by Miss 
Rees. 



HISTORY. 

Vice-Principal Edward Edwards. 

As usual, during Session 1925-26, classes were held at all grades in the 
Department of History, and the work done reached a fairly good level, 
though it fell far below the highest standards attained during some 
years in the past. At each grade there are a few promising students, who 
should be advised to proceed to the higher courses of study. The passes 
on the whole were quite of a satisfactory character. In the Honours 
stage, the best student was Miss Findlay, who was awarded a First Division 
Second Class in her Final Examination. There was only one candidate 
for the M.A. degree, Miss A. E. Roberts, who wrote a dissertation on the 
Wine Trade between England and the South of France in the Middle 
Ages and her work was of such good quality that the Examiners had 
no hesitation in recommending her for the degree. 

Once more I have to acknowledge my great indebtedness to Professor 
Stanley Roberts and Mr. L. C, Jane for their valuable help and their devo- 
tion to the interests of the students in the Department. 



PALAEOGRAPHY. 

Professor E. A. Lewis. 

Eight students attended the Palaeography Class during the first 
two terms of the Session. The regular attendants made quite satisfac- 
tory progress. Next session in addition to instruction in the Palaeography 
of Latin and English MSS. a course of lectures on the Manuscript and 
Printed Sources of Welsh History during the sixteenth and seventeent h. 
centuries will be given provided there is an adequate response from those 
interested.

COLONIAL HISTORY. 

Professor T. Stanley Roberts. 
Intermediate History. 

The Course for Intermediate Students is a fairly heavy one, for 
British History is a great subject. It is taken for granted that the 
student has been learning something about it in the Secondary Schools. 
In our scheme it forms the basis of more advanced work in the subsequent 
career of the student. What is difficult to understand is how little the 
average student has learnt before he or she enters College, and the failure 
to recognise that the subject is the basis of all future work in History. 
This year the work was on about the usual level as it was in previous years. 
There were far too many failures, due mainly to ignorance of where his- 
toric places are situated, and of technical terms. Dictionaries have 
gone out of fashion. Knowledge, however, must be precise, or it is worth 
nothing. 

Final History (Colonial). 

The Final Class was a fairly good one, and the students, without 
attaining distinction, did some solid and satisfactory work. The num- 
bers were larger than in the previous year and this makes one hope that 
the great scope of the work to be done is no longer a deterrent to students 
taking the subject. Colonial History is especially important now, when 
so many efforts are being made to people the vacant lands of our vast 
Empire, and to find homes for our own too great population. 

Honours (Colonial). 

There was only one candidate, Mr. D. O. Thomas, an ex-service 
student, who, in spite of illhealth, satisfied the examiners. 

In the forthcoming session the character of the work, and of the 
examinations in History will be changed, and it is hoped, improved 
very much. Greater attention will be paid to a special subject, and to 
the student's knowledge of languages, ancient and modern. The 
Syllabus for the Session 1926 — 1927 will furnish precise information about 
the changes a.nd the courses of History, which students may choose. 
In the re-arrangement the History Department has had the benefit of the 
advice of Professor R. Rait, M.A., of Glasgow, who is our external exami- 
ner, and for which the College owes him a deep debt of gratitude. 

PHILOSOPHY. 

Professor W. Jenkyn Jones. 

I should like to introduce my Report with a brief reference and tribute 
to the late Professor Joseph Brough, LL.D., M.Sc, my predecessor in 
the Chair of Philosophy at this College, whose death occurred in the 
course of the session. Dr. Brough was Professor from 1883 to 191 1. 
He was amongst those who witnessed from the inside a great develop- 
ment in the status, equipment and size of the College. At his appoint- 
ment it was a comparatively small institution, preparing its students 
for the degrees of the University of London. When he resigned his 
office in 191 1, the University of Wales was an accomplished fact, and 
had already more than justified its establishment. He was an eye- 
witness of the great fire of July 9th, 1885, which destroyed the greater 
part of the College building. The best account of the disaster is that 
written by him, and which appeared in the November number of the 
College Magazine for 1885. Dr. Brough took considerable interest 
in University politics, and at the inception of the University he rendered 
considerable service by his criticisms and suggestions. After his retire- 
ment he devoted himself to literary work, and for some time he lectured 
at Bedford College in the University of London. As teacher his forte 
lay in the guidance he was able to give to his more advanced pupils. 
Many who studied under him have risen to eminence as teachers and 



59 



writers. He was very versatile, a brilliant raconteur and a delightful 
companion. To the end he retained a lively interest in the University 
of Wales and in the College, in which he filled the Chair of Philosophy for 
the period of twenty-eight years. 

In the next place, while regretting to lose such a capable colleague as 
Dr. Louis A. Reid, I desire to congratulate him very sincerely upon his 
appointment to a lectureship in Philosophy in the University of Liverpool. 
Dr. Reid has completed seven years' service in this Department, and 
throughout he has devoted himself with zeal and intelligence to the 
furtherance of its interests ; and all the while he has been a most diligent 
and successful student of Philosophy, and he has contributed frequently 
to Philosophical Journals. We wish him, and the members of his family, 
much happiness and success in Liverpool. 

Lectures were given during session 1925-26, as usual, on all the 
courses in the Department. The Honours course and the Final course 
were attended by fewer students than in the previous year, but the num- 
bers taking the Subsidiary, and the Intermediate courses were about the 
same. The quality of the work was quite satisfactory on the whole, and 
the number of students who did not appear to be really interested in the 
subject was very small. 

Honours and Special Courses. — David Gwilym James, B.A., who 
obtained first class honours in Philosophy last year, obtained first class 
honours in English this year, and he was been recommended by the 
Senate for a University Studentship. D. O. Williams, B.A., who obtained 
second class honours in Philosophy in 1924, has just obtained second 
class honours in Part II. of the Theological Tripos in Cambridge, having 
specialised in the Philosophy of Religion and Christian Ethics. The hon- 
ours class of this year consisted of only two students, Miss Hettie Vera Hall 
and Geoffrey Holland Williams. Both did very good work during the 
session, and their performance at the examination did not represent their 
powers at their best. Both were placed in the second class, Miss Hall 
in the first division and Williams in the second. In the special class, 
Miss Edith Morris, who is pursuing honours in Mathematics, showed 
remarkable grip of the subject. Peter H. Williams and John Gwynfryn 
Jones also deserve to be mentioned for their good work. Out of the 
eleven candidates three failed to satisfy the examiners. 

Ordinary and Intermediate Courses. — The Ordinary Class contained 
thirty-four students who appeared to differ little either in ability or in- 
dustry. The work was substantial, but seldom distinguished. Those 
who did best were Llywarch Dodd, Miss Elias, Miss Lilian Jones and 
Stephen George. There were five failures. The Intermediate Class 
presented no features which do not normally belong to it. It con- 
tained several very able students, and others who showed little evidence 
of being fit for degree work. Out of the eighty- three students who pre- 
sented themselves for examination twenty failed to satisfy the examiners. 
I have to thank Professor Gwilym Owen for giving a capital lecture to 
the Class on Light. 

A valuable addition was made during the year to the Philosophy 
Department of the Library by a generous gift from the Cobbe Memorial 
Trustees. For this assistance I am deeply grateful. 

I also acknowledge with much gratitude the able and thoughtful 
assistance given to me in the work of the Department by Dr. Reid. 
He has been especially helpful in connection with the meetings of the 
Philosophical Society, and in the reconstruction of the Departmental 
Library. As Dr. Reid will be leaving at the end of this session, I take 
this opportunity of thanking him for the energy and thoroughness 
with which he has served the Department, and also for the unfailing 
courtesy and loyalty which have characterised his relations with my- 
self.

ECONOMICS AND POLITICAL SCIENCE. 

Professor E. A. Lewis. 

The Session for the department on the whole was quite a successful 
one. There was a slight decrease in the number of students pursuing 
the Subsidiary and Final courses, but the number taking the Honours 
course was much above the average. 

The Ordinary or Subsidiary Class included thirty- five students, and 
of these six withdrew during the session. Of the twenty-nine 
taking the examination in June, twenty- four passed. The class as a whole 
worked well. The weekly seminar class dealing with points arising out 
of the essay work, and an extra weekly seminar class dealing with the 
Money and Banking Sections of the Course, were well attended, and 
proved thoroughly interesting and beneficial. Highly commendable 
work was done by Miss K. Bomford, and by Messrs. Edgar Arthur Jones, 
Evan David Jones, Trevelyan Morris, Percy Samuel, and D. Hopkin 
Thomas. Miss Nonna Young Evans, who pursued the course for a part 
of the session only also showed distinct promise. 

The Final Course was pursued by nineteen students, and of these 
two took the alternative course in Comparative Politics (kindly con- 
ducted by Miss Friedlander during the absence of Mr. Sydney Herbert). 
The class generally proved to be an energetic and capable one, and con- 
tained six or seven students of marked ability. Excellent work was 
done throughout by Misses Findlay and Jolliffe, and by Mr. J. C. R. Davies. 
Mr. S. G. Harris and Mr. E. Grindley also made commendable progress. 
Some of these candidates propose completing the Honours course next year. 

Nine students successfully completed the second year stage of the 
Honours Course — seven in the Faculty of Arts and two in the Faculty 
of Science. In the University examination three obtained first class, 
four class II., Division I., and two were placed in Class III. The stronger 
candidates showed a distinctly high aptitude for economic analysis and 
criticism. Messrs. D. E. J. Davies, Bernard Myrddin Evans and Brinley 
Thomas, who secured first classes compared very favourably with the 
best students in the Department in the past. Mr. Brinley Thomas's 
work in Comparative and International Politics, and that of Mr. D. E. J. 
Davies in his special paper on Trade Unionism reached a markedly high 
level. 

Postgraduate Research. — Two former students of the Department, 
Mr. J. Morgan Jones and Mr. H. Meredith, working under the direction 
of Mr. A. W. Ashby, Head of the Agricultural Economics Department, 
were awarded the degrees of M.A. and M.Sc, respectively, for really 
excellent dissertations upon certain aspects of modern Welsh farming 
problems. Mr. Ashby is to be heartily congratulated upon the first fruits 
of his Research Department. Another former student, Mr. Percy 
George, B.Sc, completed his M.Sc. dissertation but was precluded from 
formal presentation by his departure to take up an important appoint- 
ment as Lecturer in Commerce in Durban, South Africa. 

Mr. John Alun Thomas, M.A., late Fellow of the Welsh University, 
secured the degree of Ph. p. in the University of London, and Mr. Edgar 
Thomas, B.A., the degree of B.Litt. in the University of Oxford. 

During the year, Mr. J. Morgan Rees, in addition to writing various 
articles on current economic problems, published a valuable monograph 
on " Unemployment as an International Problem," and has, in prepara- 
tion, another volume on a cognate topic. I myself have prepared a volume 
entitled " The Welsh Port Books of the Sixteenth Century," which 
will be published shortly by the Cymmrodorion Society. 

My best thanks are again due to Mr. Rees and Mr. W. King and also to 
Miss L. Friedlander for their efficient and loyal assistance in carrying 
on the work of the Department. 



6i 



CELTIC RESEARCH AND PALAEOGRAPHY. 

Mr. Timothy Lewis. 

During session 1925-26 two courses of lectures were delivered on 
Celtic Palaeography — one for the first year and another for the second 
year. Two students took the first year's course and both were very keen 
students and did some excellent exercises on Mediaeval Manuscripts. 

One student took the second year's course and both his class work 
and his exercises showed great promise, but unfortunately his health 
broke down half-way through and he had to go to Talgarth Sanatorium. 

One of last year's students took his M.A. degree with a thesis on the 
" Welsh Scribes and Manuscript Collectors," — -John Jones, of Gelli Lyfdy, 
and Robert Vaughan of Hengwrt. 

PURE MATHEMATICS. 

Professor G. A. Schott. 
The numbers of students taking courses in the department this 
session were almost the same as last session ; so also were the numbers 
of passes. The chief differences were a decrease in the Subsidiary class 
and increases in the Final and Honours classes. The work done was very 
satisfactory, especially at the Final and Honours stages, and the follow- 
ing students are deserving of special commendation : — Subsidiary, Miss 
D. S. Meyler, W. V. Williams ; Second Year, Honours, H. Falkner, Miss 

C. W. Lucas. This session, for the first time since the re-organisation 
of the department, there were students (2) taking Second Year Honours 
in Pure Mathematics alone, of whom one, Miss C. W. Lucas, obtained 
First Class and the other Second Class, Second Division. Owing 
to the limited f acuities provided hitherto for the study of Applied Mathe- 
matics in Girls' Schools and the consequent insufficient preparation 
of women students at entrance in that subject, it will be necessary for 
some time yet to provide an Honours course in Pure Mathematics alone, 
although the new Combined course in Pure and Applied Mathematics 
gives a much better balanced training in Mathematics and besides 
affords better opportunities for the student's future career. Five 
students, all men, took the combined Honours course, three with Theory 
of Functions, and two with Differential Geometry as their special sub- 
ject in Pure Mathematics. The inauguration of courses in Geometry 
and Algebra up to the highest stages is a gratifying feature of this session's 
work, in so far as the training in Pure Mathematics has thereby been 
rendered much better balanced than hitherto, and the successful carrying 
out of this new departure is mainly due to and reflects great credit upon 
Mr. V. C. Morton, M.A., the new Head of the Department. I wish 
to thank him and his colleagues, Messrs. W. G. L. Sutton, M.A., and 

D. R. Williams, M.A., for the valuable work they have done, and I am 
confident that under the guidance of Mr. Morton the future progress of 
the Department is well assured.

APPLIED MATHEMATICS. 

Professor G. A. Schott. 



The numbers of students registered and examined this session were 
slightly greater than last session, mainly owing to small increases at 
the higher stages, and the quality of the work done was satisfactory. The 
following students deserve special commendation : — Intermediate, W. V. 
Williams ; Subsidiary, Miss D. S. Meyler ; Second Year Honours, H. 
Falkner. Of the five students who sat the Combined Honours examina- 
tion, one, H. Falkner, obtained First Class, three Second Class, Second 
Division, and one Third Class. One or two might have done better, 
but the result is very fair, considering the severity of the course and the 
exacting character of the examination. The courses in Applied Mathema- 
tics are now undergoing some re-organisation consequent upon the changes 
in the course in Pure Mathematics, and it is hoped that this will be of 
assistance to the Honours students in the future. When this work has 
been completed more time will be available for research work. In the 
meantime Mr. W. R. Morgans, B.Sc, who holds a University Student- 
ship, has completed a considerable portion of an M.Sc. thesis on the 
Wave equation and, as part of it, is working at the extension of Kirchhoff 's 
and allied solutions of the wave equation to moving boundaries, with 
a view to applications to the motion of the electron. Mr. Sutton is work- 
ing out a problem in the Quantum theory of Spectrum series, for part 
of which he has already gained Honourable Mention in competition for 
the Senior Mathematical Scholarship at Oxford University. Professor 
Schott has a paper ready for publication on the Linear Electric oscillator, 
as well as several others in preparation. Mr. T. Lewis, M.Sc, entered 
upon his duties as Assistant Lecturer at the beginning of the session, 
and has done very good vrork in this position, whilst Mr. Sutton has 
given valuable help in taking the First Year Honours course in Mathe- 
matical Physics.

On the whole the work of the students was good, and with a few 
exceptions all worked well and took an interest in the subject. 

The work of the following students is worthy of special mention : — • 
Honours : T. S. E. Thomas and E. J. Gooding, who obtained First 
Class Honours. 

• Final : J. Grindley, D. I. Jenkins, D. C. E. Jenkins, J. C. Llewellyn. 
Subsidiary : David Lewis, A. Gwyneth Rees, T. J. Rees, I. G. 
Richards. 

Intermediate : Emrys Davies, E. G. James, J. R. E. Jones, Dorothy 
Meyler, D. E. Rees. 

Postgraduate : The postgraduate students during this session num- 
bered two, H. Hall (Garrod Thomas Research Scholar) and E. J. 
Evans, who was awarded a grant from the Department of 
Scientific and Industrial Research. Both of these students 
pursued research under my direction — Mr. Hall on the disin- 
tegration of tungsten wires in various gases, and Mr. Evans on 
photoelectricity. In March last Mr. Evans was appointed 
Junior Research Assistant in the National Physical Laboratory. 
He is to be congratulated on his success. 

In July, 1925, we lost the services of Mr. J. West, B.Sc, who was 
elected to the Harling Research Fellowship at Manchester University. 
I should like to place on record here my appreciation of his very efficient 
and loyal help in the work of the Department during the five years he 
was here. To fill the vacancy thus created, Mr. R. M. Davies, B.Sc, was 
appointed Assistant Lecturer. Mr. Davies is an old student of this 
College and at the time of his appointment he held a post as Junior 
Scientific Assistant in the Research Department of the Royal Navy. 
He has carried out his duties during this, his first session, with marked 



6 4 



success. Mr. W. Mandell, B.Sc, has prosecuted his researches with 
the greatest diligence. A paper of his, entitled ' The measurement of 
Temperature by thermocouples in unequally heated enclosures," was 
accepted by the Physical Society of London, and published in the proceed- 
ings of the Society. Mr. Mandell presented this paper as his thesis for 
the M.Sc. degree of the University of Wales, and he was awarded the 
degree. During the session Mr. Mandell and Mr. R. M. Davies have 
collaborated in an investigation of the elastic properties of piezo-electric 
crystals. Mr. Tunstall is preparing his apparatus for his work on crystal 
structure. As usual, Mr. Sulston as Technical Assistant has been un- 
remitting in his devotion to the work of the laboratory. His services 
are most valuable. 

In conclusion I wish to express my gratitude to all my colleagues for 
their very efficient and loyal co-operation in the work of the Department.

There were no changes in the personnel of the teaching staff during the 
session. 

Intermediate Course. — This class consisted largely of beginners with 
little previous knowledge of the subject. The lecture courses were con- 
ducted, by me while Messrs. Hudleston and Davies supervised the practical 
work. The examination results were good and the work of the following 
students is worthy of special mention : — Miss Mary A. Rees, Miss M. E. 
Metcalfe, Messrs. J. R. E. Jones and Emrys Davies. 

Subsidiary Course. — The Physical Chemistry course was conducted 
by Mr. Bury while I dealt with the Organic side and Messrs. Hudleston 
and Davies the practical work. The examination results were very 
satisfactory and special mention is due to Miss A. G. Rees, and Messrs. 
V. L. Davies, H. O. Jenkins and T. W. Evans. 



65 



Final Course. — Mr. Green and I conducted the Organic lecture course 
while Mr. Hudleston dealt with the Physical and Inorganic side. Mr. 
Green also supervised the practical work. The standard attained was in 
general satisfactory, although there were a few poor students in the class. 
The work of Messrs. J. Grindley, D. I. Jenkins, D. C. E. Jenkins, and 
J. I. Stephens is worthy of special mention. 

Two students took the course in Chemistry with Agricultural Bio- 
chemistry, partly in this Department and partly in the Department of 
Agricultural Chemistry. Both did well and passed the Final Degree 
Examination. 

Honours Course. — The Honours Class consisted of ten students, two 
being women. It was a remarkably able group, every member of which 
worked with vigour and enthusiasm. All members of the staff took part 
in their preparation and gave courses of lectures on special topics while 
Mr. David Evans again conducted two classes a week in German transla- 
tion and M. Darbelnet one class per week in French translation. The 
tutorial work of the class was shared by Messrs. Bury, Hudleston and 
myself, while Messrs. Bury and Green dealt with the practical work. 
In addition each member of the class worked for a period at a research 
problem under my personal direction. 

The results were very satisfactory, Messrs. N. W. Hanson, F. E. 
Jones, I. G. Jones, W. G. Jones, and W. C. Walmsley obtained First 
Class Honours, Messrs. D. J. Jones and E. Lewis, Second Class Honours 
(Division i), and Miss W. M. Bligh, Mr. R. Jones and Miss C. Newton, 
Second Class Honours (Division 2) . 

Postgraduate and Research. — Mr. F. S. Brown (Garrod Thomas 
Research Scholar) completed the third year of the Ph.D. course working 
under the direction of Mr. C. R. Bury. His Ph.D. thesis, consisting of five 
published papers, was adjudged to be of excellent quality and he has 
been granted the degree. Mr. Brown has now entered Messrs. Courtauld's 
as a Research Chemist. 

Mr. E. J. Lewis returned to the Department for a short period to com- 
plete his thesis for the M.Sc. degree and worked under my direction. He 
presented his work successfully for the degree, Mr. Lewis is Assistant- 
Manager of Beacon Clays, Ltd., St. Austell, Cornwall. 

Mr. A. O. Jones, Science Master at Birkenhead Grammar School, 
also presented research work carried out externally for the M.Sc. degree 
and was successful.

BOTANY. 

Professor J. Lloyd Williams. 

As this, to my great regret, is my last session in College, I take the 
opportunity of thanking the Principal, the Council and my colleagues 
for all the kindness and encouragement I have received at their hands 
during the eleven and a half years of my occupancy of the Chair of Botany. 
I have again to acknowledge the loyal and highly efficient services of my 
two assistants, Dr. S. G. Jones and Mr. P. W. Carter. In particular 
it is my duty to record my appreciation of the services rendered to the 
College and myself during the first five weeks of the summer term, when 
I was incapacitated by an accident. In spite of my absence not a single 
lecture or other class was omitted from the usual programme. 

In the report for 1924 attention was called to the revolution that has 
taken place in the position of Botany at this College. The change has 
now developed still further and a number of factors seem as if they had 
been definitely designed to reduce the number of students taking Botany. 

1. The Science Faculty decided to exclude all science students from 
taking the Final Stage. Ours is the only College where this rule 
obtains. As explained in the report referred to, this has had the 
gratifying effect of raising the standard in science. 

2. While it had been hoped that some Arts students would still take 
Botany or some other pure science up to the Subsidiary stage, 
the exclusion by the Arts Faculty of Botany from the list of 
sciences that may be taken in an Arts degree has resulted in totally 
ehminating the Arts student from the Botany Course. 

In passing it may be noted that many Heads of County Schools 
complain bitterly about this, for it is a very striking fact that many 
of the most successful teachers of the subject in the Schools are not 
B.Sc.'s, but B.A.'s. As the Subsidiary Course has been specially 
framed to qualify such students for the successful teaching of 
School Botany it seems a pity that advantage is not taken of it. 

3. The very important changes recently initiated in the Agricultural 
Department — the establishing of Honours degrees in Agriculture, 
Agricultural Botany, and in a number of other branches of Agricul- 
ture, have diverted from Final and Honours Botany the best 
student element that the Department had to rely upon. This 
year there were no men taking the Honours Course, and, as the 
women students all go in for training there are none available for 
postgraduate courses and research. 

Other minor factors affecting the entry of students in this Depart- 
ment are : — 

4. The establishing of a Medical School at Cardiff, bringing about a 
diminution in the numbers of medicals taking their first year at this 
College. 

5. The change over in some schools from Botany to Biology or Zoology. 
This movement may develop still further especially if the authori- 
ties concerned insist on including in the Botany Examinations 
and in no other subjects) questions in Pure Chemistry. 

Seeing that a few years ago the great majority of the students taking 
Botany were Arts students, it might have been reasonably expected 
that serious changes like the above would have reduced the Botany 
Department to a mere shadow. The surprising fact is, however, that the 
numbers this year were higher than during either of the two preceding 
years, while the quality was considerably better. There were three 
failures in the Final Examination, but none in the others. Two of the 
Honours candidates, Miss Skrine and Miss Moorhouse, obtained First 



68 



Classes, while Miss Morgan and Miss Ouida Davies were not far behind 
and were placed in Class I la. The external examiner expressed sur- 
prise at the intellectual capacity and the wide extent of knowledge of the 
students. 

Dr. S. G. Jones's papers on Rhytisma, and another on Ophiobolus, 
have just been published in the " Annals of Botany," and Mr. Carter's 
paper on Padina will appear in the October number of the same publica- 
tion. The writer had the honour of presiding over Section K. of the 
British Association at Southampton, his address (published in the pro- 
ceedings of the Association), dealing with The Phaeophyceae and 
their problems.

Elementary Course. — Nine students preparing for the Diploma in Agri- 
culture attended lectures and demonstrations throughout the Michaelmas 
Term. The work of this class was fairly good but not up to the standard 
of the previous year. The name of Mr. W. A. Jones is worthy of special 
mention. 

Intermediate Course. — This was the best class which we have had at 
this stage for several years. Excellent work was done by the following 
students :— Misses M. J. Chauvel, M. Dewhirst, M. C. Daniel, N. M. 
Goodfellow, G. Davies and Mr. J. G. Davies. 

Subsidiary Course. — The work of this class was, on the whole, dis- 
tinctly good and special mention should be made of Miss C. M. Griffiths 
and Mr. E. R. Davies. 

Final Course. — This was a good, hard-working class of seven students, 
all of whom passed the University Examination without difficulty. 
Miss F. E. Wilks, Messrs. R. R. Thomas and W. N. G. Davies maintained 
a very high standard throughout the session. 

Honours. — Mr. R. O. Roberts, B.Sc, pursued the Honours Course. 
He worked extremely well throughout the session and showed himself 
to be a student of exceptional ability, obtaining an excellent First Class 
Honours. Mr. Roberts was awarded First Class Honours in Chemistry 
in the previous session. 

Mr. R. M. Jehu, M.Sc, has been appointed Assistant Lecturer in the 
Department of Geography and Geology in the University of Natal, Pieter- 
maritzburg, and left England to take up his duties in March of this year. 
His paper on the Geology of the country between Towyn and Abergynol- 
wyn, which he presented in candidature for the M.Sc. degree, was. read 
before the Geological Society of London, on May 13th, 1925 (Abstracts,. 
Proc. Geol. Soc, No. 1151). 

Mr. K. A. Davies, M.Sc, has continued his researches in the area 
between Rhayader and Llansawel. His paper on the Geology of th& 
Abergwesyn country, presented in candidature for the M.Sc. degree last 
year, was read before the Geological Society of London, on May 13th, 
1925 (Abstracts, Proc. Geol. Soc, No. 1151). Last session Mr. Davies 
was elected to a one-year Fellowship by the University. This Fellow- 
ship has recently been extended for a second year and he is a prospective 
candidate for the Ph.D. degree at the end of next session. 

Mr. K. E. Williams, B.Sc, has pursued a scheme of research during 
the past session on the Glacial Drifts of Western Cardiganshire. He 
is now engaged in preparing the results of his investigations for publica- 
tion in one of the geological journals. Mr. J. Challinor and Mr. Williams 
have a paper in course of publication in the Geological Magazine. 

Mr. R. O. Roberts, B.Sc, who obtained First Class Honours this 
year, has been awarded a University Studentship for two years, to enable 
him to undertake research in the Department. 

In January of this year, Dr. F. J. North, Keeper of Geology in the 
National Museum of Wales, gave a special lecture to the students of the 
Department, which was greatly appreciated and enjoyed by his audience. 

As in previous years, I have to report considerable additions to the 
Departmental Museum and Library. A valuable gift of coal measure 
plants has been made by the National Museum of Wales, which will be 



70 



particularly useful for teaching purposes. The collections have been 
increased by gifts and by the personal collecting of staff and students. 
No additional accommodation has been found possible and the work of the 
Department is considerably restricted on this accoun^. 

The Department is again indebted to J. B. Willans, Esq., Doiforgan, 
for gifts of various kinds and a contribution of fjzo towards the funds 
of the Department. 

Field excursions were organised throughout the session and during 
the Easter vacation Mr. Piatt and Mr. Challinor took the Final and 
Honours students to Malvern. 

My best thanks are due to my colleagues, Messrs. Challinor and 
Piatt for their efficient and loyal services.

on Entomology and the other lectures were given by myself. Mr. Wat- 
kin took the practical work. The general standard of work was excellent. 

Honours Course. — In addition to supervision by myself, Mr. Watkin 
and Mr. Lewis, valuable assistance was given in Entomology by Mr. J. R. 
W. Jenkins. The Course was pursued by Miss F. L. Truckenmiller, B.Sc, 
Mr. P. L. Emery, B.Sc, and Mr. LI. lorwerth Jones, B.Sc. Miss Trucken- 
miller obtained a First Class, Mr. Emery was placed in the Second Division 
of the Second Class and Mr. Jones in the Third Class. The thesis work 
of all three was commended. 

Postgraduate Research. — Dr. K. E. Carpenter has continued 
her investigations upon the local freshwater fauna in relation to lead 
pollution under a continuation of her personal grant from the Depart- 
ment of Scientific and Industrial Research. A general work on Faunistic 
Ecology of Welsh Trout Streams is just completed and about to be 
published, as is also a laboratory study of the physiological effects of 
metallic solutions oa fishes. Her grant has been renewed for the year 
1926 — 1927. 

Mr. E. Aneurin Lewis, M.Sc, has continued his work as Field Officer 
in Helminthology for the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries' Institute 
of Parasitology. He has continued his Investigation of Helminthic 
Parasites of Domestic Animals. He has also made an interesting collec- 
tion of Welsh names of Diseases of Domestic Animals. 

Miss Blodwen Fox, M.Sc, has continued her work under a renewal of 
her grant from the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research. 
She has been studying the Reactions of the Marine Triclad, Fovia affinis, 
and the theory underlying its Processes of Regeneration. 

Miss Louise Beanland, B.Sc, has been studying throughout the year 
the question of " Animal Communities," in the light of observations made 
upon a selected patch of shore at Ynyslas. She has this year been awarded 
the degree of M.Sc. 

Mr. E. E. Edwards, B.Sc, has worked during the session, with a 
grant from the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, upon 
(a) The Anatomy of an undescribed Bird Trematode Parasite, and (b) the 
Soil Fauna of selected areas of the College Farm, considered quantitatively 
and in relation to environment. He has been awarded the degree 
of M.Sc. this year. 

Mr. E. E. Watkin, B.Sc, has continued his work upon Herring 
Migrations and has obtained results of importance in relation to the work 
being simultaneously carried out by the Ministry of Agriculture and 
Fisheries at Lowestoft, and by the Liverpool Department of Oceano- 
graphy at Port Erin. 

Mr. D. O. Morgan, B.Sc, has been placed upon the graded staff 
of the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries Institute of Parasitology 
at the London School of Tropical Medicine. He has been this year 
awarded the M.Sc. degree for work on the Helminthic Parasites of Domes- 
tic Animals at Aberystwyth, together with work on Nematode Disease 
on Potatoes, carried out at Kirton, Lines. 

The Head of the Department has completed for publication an 
account of the Anomura, obtained by Professor Stanley Gardiner's " Sea- 
lark " expedition to the Seychelles. 



7^ 



Dr. R. L. Chopra who left us last session, has been appointed 
to the permanent Entomological Staff of the Punjab Agricultural College, 
and has this session been functioning as Acting Entomologist to the Pun- 
jab, a very responsible post. Mr. P. A. Little, B.Sc, has been appointed 
Acting Professor of Biology at University College, Galway, for the session 
1925-26. Mr. W. M. Speight, M.Sc, has been appointed Biology Master 
in the Manchester Grammar School, and Mr. Dilwyn John, M.Sc, whose 
appointment to the scientific staff of the " Discovery " Expedition, was 
recorded in my last report, has during the last year had the responsible 
work of superintending the scientific equipment of the whale-marking 
boat, the " William Scoresby," upon which he has just sailed to join the 
main party in Southern waters. 

We have this year published the first of a new series of Reports 
from this Department on Marine and Freshwater Investigations. This 
is an important item, bringing us into line with the other centres of marine 
investigation around the British Coast, each of which has its Report. 
Further advantages of the Report are that it gives Aberystwyth an 
individuality in relation to marine work and also provides us with a means 
of securing exchange of publications with other Institutions at home 
and abroad. Some three hundred and fifty copies have been distributed 
to all parts of the world, and a large number of publications have been 
received in return. 

The following items have been published during the year ending 
June 30th, 1926 : —

The Hon. Samuel Vestey has again given a donation of ^25 to the 
Department to help forward its work. This help is highly valued. 
Valuable specimens have been presented to the Museum by Mr. David 
Davies, M.P., namely,, a Rhinoceros Head, two fine heads of South African 
" Cooke's Hartebeest," one fine head of a South African Oryx, and 
a Wild Cat from Scotland. Other gifts include a White Shrew from 
the Rev. J. H. Williams, taken at Llanbrynmair. 

Mr. Watkin and Mr. Aneurin Lewis deserve much credit for the 
efficient discharge of their duties and for their never tiring and loyal 
co-operation in all the affairs of the Department. Miss Blodwen Wil- 
liams has continued to show herself an excellent Laboratory Attendant. 

The work of the Department has again this session been carried out 
under difficult conditions, part of it in the Old College Buildings and part 
at the Agricultural Buildings. When we are able to occupy the New 
Zoology Buildings in Cambrian Street it will be of great advantage 
to the development of our work. I earnestly look forward also to the 
restoration of a full-time Assistant Lectureship in place of the half-time 
assistance introduced under special circumstances as a measure of economy 
prior to the recent increase in the Government grant to the University.

The Honours class of nine students sent in some good dissertation 
work, a notable contribution being an essay on Drover Roads with special 
reference to Wales by Mr. D. V. Thomas. Mr. T. G. Williams's work 
on the Loess in its relation to European Society was also of wide interest. 



74 



Misses V. M. Couser and M. Dobbin passed successfully through the 
courses for the Diploma in Geography and the former contributed notably 
to the life of the Department from her varied experience in Canada and 
Kentucky. The Final Class was large and of specially good quality. 
Mr. Arthur Davies's study of the corrections of census returns necessary 
for accurate interpretation of population movements has been prepared 
for publication. Mr. R. A. Pelham continued his valuable catalogue of 
articles of current interest, three instalments being published during the 
year. • Mr. Deiniol Williams' study of communications and their evolu- 
tion in Carnarvonshire is valuable as a basis for his further work. 

Among postgraduate students, Mr. E. G. Bowen continued his studies 
of anthropological types and social geography in relation to phthisis in 
S.W. Wales. He has obtained the degree of M.A. with distinction, and 
has been elected as the first holder of the Cecil Prosser Research Student- 
ship of ^250 per annum at the Welsh National School of Medicine, Cardiff, 
on the proposition of Colonel Professor Lyle Cummins, and the Faculty 
of Medicine. Mr. Bowen has had a grant from the Department of Scien- 
tific and Industrial Research for two years, 1924-26. 

Mr. E. Estyn Evans, holding a University Studentship, has developed 
his studies of the later Bronze Age in Western Europe and is continuing 
them next year as a member of New College, Oxford. 

Mr. Trevor Lewis continued his examination of a site at Llanhilleth, 
Mon., and has also undertaken, in conjunction with Mr. J. E. Daniel, the 
excavation of a site near Llanddewi Brefi, Cards. Mr. Daniel has also 
continued his interesting work on the distribution of adherence to the 
various religious organisations in Wales. Mr. Meurig Jones has advanced 
his work on local types of rural houses. Mr. I. C. Peate, M.A. is preparing 
a book in Welsh dealing with the natural regions of Wales, based largely 
on references in Welsh prose and poetry, and has written an article on some 
important archaeological finds from Darowen for publication. An article 
by Mr. Trevor Lewis on the linguistic census of Wales is appearing shortly 
in the Annales de Geographic The amount of original work in progress 
and the large size of the Flonours class make the running of the Depart- 
ment expensive in both energy and money, and it may soon be necessary 
to ask for special help having regard to the fact that it is the only school 
of the subject in the University. 

Misses M. Dewhirst and O. Goodyear and Messrs. J. G. Davies, Hop- 
kin Thomas and Trevor Thomas did especially good work at the Subsidiary 
stage. 

Publications from the Department and its former students include : — 

1. I have published articles on " New Work on the History of the 
Earth's Surface " (Geographical Teacher, Vol. XIII, pt. 3) ; 
" Human Geography of Pembrokeshire " (Pembrokeshire Educa-

The " Geographical Teacher " has been edited and issued from Aber- 
ystwyth as heretofore and the Association's Library has been developed 
on a large scale, thanks to the enterprise of Miss R. M. Fleming, and to a 
gift of ^1,000 from the Carnegie United Kingdom Trust. I have to 
thank Misses Fleming, Harris, Cuming, Woodward, Couser, McLean, 
and Messrs. Whitehouse, Pelham, Estyn Evans, Fallaize, Rudmose Brown, 
Fairgrieve, Carter and others for help with reviews and permission to 
place books reviewed in the Association's Library. This Library is 
used by senior students who become members of the Association. 

Miss Harris's work on rural settlements is developing considerably, 
and her travels in this connection are evidence of devotion and enter- 
prise for which I offer her my best thanks. Miss Fleming's work on the 
growth of children is also advancing rapidly, but must take several years 
to complete as the plan is to follow individual children throughout their 
growth. My own work in conjunction with Mr. Harold Peake is in course 
of publication through the Oxford University Press. 

The organisation of Departmental Museums has been continued and 
several gifts to these Museums are included in the lists below. 

We have had visits, and in some cases lectures, from a number of 
specialists including Mr. Lleufer Thomas, Mr. Harold Peake, Mons. Zacha- 
rie le Rouzic, Professors Roxby, Rodwell Jones, Solch and Lyle Cummins 
and Dr. Cyril Fox. Lectures have been given by the staff of the Depart- 
ment, Miss Fleming and Messrs. I. C. Peate and E.G. Bowen, at a number 
of places in Wales, including the Vacation School in Theology at University 
College, Bangor, as well as at Derby, Shrewsbury, Cheltenham, Marl- 
borough, London, and Exeter. 

The Geographical Society in the department has prospered under 
the presidency of Mr. J. E. Daniel and visits to Llanbrynmair and Dylife, 
and to Snowdon, have been features of the year's activities. 

The staffs of the National Library and the College Library, and Mr. 
R. Ellis, M.A., are asked to accept the best thanks of the Department 
for much help, and purchases by the National Library have contributed 
very specially to the increase of our research facilities. 



7 6 



The Principal, Professors James, Pugh, Chappie, Stanley Roberts, 
and Messrs. D. R. Jones, G. H. Green, L. C. Jane and L. J. Hudleston 
have kindly helped researchers in the Department in various ways. 

The closing of the Hall of Residence for men has proved a serious 
drawback to the work of the Department, and I hope the College authori- 
ties may take up the question of organising another hostel ; it would 
be of the greatest value to the life of the men students to live together 
and to have the resulting opportunities of discussion of scientific work. 

Gifts to the Department include : — 

Arrowheads, a bronze dagger and pottery from Mr. J. M. Howell, 
Aberdovey, per Mr. I. C. Peate ; Diagrammatic sections across 
Belgium from Miss Coulthard ; Illustrated books on Scandin- 
avia, etc., from Mr. J. B. Willans ; A map of London in 1752, 
from Miss A. Heynes, per Miss Harris ; Early flint implements 
from Solva, Pembs., through Mr. S. K. Greenslade ; Specimens of 
slates from the Abergynolwyn Extra Mural Class, per Mr. I. C. 
Peate ; Callais beads from Kercado Dolmen, Carnac, Brittany, 
from Mons. Z. le Rouzic ; Fragments of a bronze age lipped 
crucible found at Merthyr Mawr Sandhills, near Bridgend, from 
Mrs Blundell, Porthcawl ; Lantern Slides from Miss S. Harris ; 
Maps and atlases from the Geographical Association ; Books 
from Mr. E. Ewart Price and Mr. E. R. Dudlyke ; objects from 
Africa etc., from Mr. G. H. Green. Mr. S. K. Greenslade has 
helped with purchases of archaeological interest from the Museum 
Endowment Fund. 

In conclusion I wish to thank Mr. Whitehouse for much help in depart- 
mental organisation and especially for assistance to students preparing 
regional essays, Miss S. Harris, who has raised the work in structural 
geography to a high level and has done much to organise our books and 
maps, besides contributing to help research in several directions, Miss 
R. M. Fleming, who has volunteered much help to researchers, Miss E. 
Owen, who has given thought to many matters of detail, and Mr. E. G. 
Bowen, who kindly offered to take a good deal of cartographical work 
for us in an emergency, and who has done a great deal during his period 
of postgraduate study to develop research ideas among the students. 



LAW. 

Professor Levi. 

I have the honour to report on the Faculty of Law during Session 
1925 — 1926, as follows : — 

Number of Students. — There were during Session 1925 — 1926, 51 
individual students attending the Law Courses, Pass and Honours, in the 
College. There were 20 regular Ll.B. students, four in the Preliminary 
Stage, seven in the Ordinary Stage, five in the Final Course, and four 
in the Honours Course. In addition to these students, there were a num- 
ber of articled clerks who are, for convenience sake, separately classified. 

Number of A rticled Clerks. — There were, during 1925 — 1926, in receipt 
of tuition from the College, 19 articled clerks, and nine intending articled 
clerks, classified thus : — 



77 



Articled Clerks attending the Central Wales Law School 
open for articled clerks at Aberystwyth ... ... 8 

Articled Clerks attending the North Wales Law School 9 

Articled Clerks not including any of the above taking 
the LI. B. Course at the College ... ... ... 2 

Articled Clerks who have definitely agreed to be 
articled on leaving College ... ... ... ... 9 

Successes of Students. — Mr. J. Walter Jones, B.A., Ll.M., a former 
law student of the College has been appointed lecturer in law at Queen's 
College, Oxford. 

Mr. D. J. Llewelfryn Davies, Ll.B., till recently a law student at the 
College has been placed first in First Class Honours in the Law Tripos at 
Cambridge, and his work, has received the high commendation of the 
authorities. He has, since then, been awarded the Rhondda Research 
Studentship at Cambridge, and a valuable Prize enabling him to carry 
out research in International Law. 

Mr. Vyrnwy Lewis, Ll.B., has been placed first in First Class in a part 
of the Bar Examination and been awarded the Constitutional Law Scholar- 
ship. 

Mr. H. G. Hammond, Ll.B., has obtained First Classes in several 
subjects of the Bar Examination. 

Mr. Harold Morgan Arthur, Ll.B., a present student has been awarded 
the Samuel Evans Prize in the University of Wales, and intends to utilise 
the scholarship in writing a thesis for the Ll.M. Degree of the University 
of Wales. 

Mr. J. Alun Davies, Ll.B., has obtained fourth place in the United 
Kingdom in First Class Honours at the Solicitors' Final Examination. 

Miss Muriel Joliffe, B.A., obtained the Llewelyn Jones Prize for an 
Essay on " The Freedom of the Seas." 

Mr. Charles H. Roberts, B.A., a former law student, was appointed 
Assistant Lecturer in Law at the University College, Exeter. 

Increase of Grant from the Law Society. — It is worthy of note that 
during the present session, in view of the increased work undertaken 
by the Law Department and the establishment of a Central Wales Law 
School at Aberystwyth as well as a North Wales Law School at Rhyl for 
the benefit of articled clerks, the grant from the Law Society was in- 
creased to £600 per annum, and a special grant of £50 was also made for the 
purchase of books on English law for the College Law Library. The 
thanks of the College are due to Mr. Llewellyn Jones, Mr. Lleufer 
Thomas, Mr. H. J. S. Jenkins, and Mr. J. W. Van Druten for 
the assistance they rendered in presenting a strong case for the 
increase of the grant to the College, and especially to the Law 
Society .for their ready and generous recognition of the work 
done for articled clerks by the College. The classes for articled clerks 
both at Aberystwyth and Rhyl have been remarkably successful, and 
it is intended to continue both branches and if possible to expand them, 
so that these advantages may be within easy and convenient reach of all 
articled clerks both in Central and North Wales. 

Gifts of Books and Publications. — We desire to acknowledge gratefully, 
the many gifts of law books made to the College, particularly the follow- 
ing :— 

"Transactions of the Grotius Society," presented by Mr. F. 
Llewellyn Jones, Ll.B. 



7 8 



" Principles of Roman Law," by Professor Buckland, of Cam- 
bridge. 

" English Legal History," by Mr. Harold Potter, of Birmingham. 

" The New Law of Property," by Mr. G. C. Cheshire, of Exeter 
College, Oxford, a former Lecturer in law at Aberystwyth. 

Publications on the League of Nations, by the League of Nations 
Union for Wales (a complete set of all papers published by 
the Union). 

Various works presented by Law Publishers, Messrs. Sweet 
and Maxwell, Stevens and Sons, and Butterworth. 

Particulars of Research Work. — Valuable research work has been 
carried on during the Session by Mr. T. Ellis Lewis, Ll.B., Assistant Lec- 
turer in Law, principally in the preparation of a work on "Judicial Pre- 
cedent," articles contributed to the Solicitors' Journal on Covenants to 
Repair and on Stephen's Commentaries, several reviews of new text 
books, particularly on the recent Property Statutes and comments on 
current case-law and, judicial decisions contributed regularly during the 
session to each number of the Law Quarterly Review. Mr. H. J. S. Jen- 
kins has also contributed to the Solicitor's Journal an article on Recent 
Decisions in Private International Law. 

New Appointments. — At the close of the Session it has, unfortunately, 
become necessary to make new appointments in place of Mr, J. W. Van 
Druten, Ll.B., special lecturer under the Solicitors" Act, and Mr. H. J. S. 
Jenkins, B.C.L., who has been appointed Lecturer in Law at the London 
School of Economics. The departure of both these Lecturers will be a 
very real loss to the Law Department. Mr. Van Druten has for three 
years carried on the North Wales Law School with complete success. 
In fact, he has practically created that branch of our work, and he will be 
very difficult to replace. In addition he has lectured at the College with 
great success on the History of English Law. Mr. Jenkins has been for 
two years in the service of the College and has taken part in every branch 
of the work. He has spared no pains with students, individually as well 
as collectively, and much of the conspicuous success of the Honours 
students is due to his advanced lectures on case-law. He came to us with 
the highest credentials from Oxford and he has more than fulfilled the 
expectations then formed. Both Mr. Van Druten and Mr. Jenkins 
rendered the College a most valuable service in assisting to obtain our 
increased grant from the Law Society. The students showed their 
appreciation of their work by making presentations to both lecturers at 
the close of the Session, and we shall all wish them well in their new 
sphere. 

The special report of Mr. Van Druten with reference to the Law School 
carried on in North Wales is appended. 

North Wales Law School: 

Mr. J. W. Van Druten. 

I beg to submit the following report of the work of the third year of 
the North Wales Law School. 

The Final Class this year has consisted of nine members. Of these, 
six were former members of the Intermediate class, who have passed 
their Solicitors' Intermediate Examination. In the first term, lectures 
were delivered on the new Law of Property (including the Law of Property 
Act, 1925, the Settled Land Act, 1925, and the Land Charges Act, 1925), 
and on the Law of Contract generally. In the second term the subjects 
were Administration of Estates under the Act of 1925, and specific 
Mercantile contracts, such as Sale of Goods, Carriage, Insurance and 
Bills of Exchange. 



79 



The Intermediate Class consisted of three students, and lectures in 
both terms were delivered on Vols. II. and III. of Stephen's Commentaries, 
1 8th Edition, including the new Law of Property. 

In the third term, the General Strike supervened after the first lec- 
ture. Lectures were suspended for four weeks, but the class met again 
on May 25th. On this occasion, however, several students were absent 
and it was found that, owing to the Coal Dispute, transport difficulties 
were still so acute as to render it impracticable to continue the work of 
the School. It was therefore decided, in accordance with the circular 
issued by the Law Society, to suspend the School for the remainder of the 
term and to make up the five lectures so missed by extending future terms. 
In the two lectures given in the third term the subjects of Conveyancing 
and of Tort were started. 

Attendance during the year has been regular and the results of the 
Terminal Examinations satisfactory. Out of the 40 papers marked, 10 
reached 70% and over, and eight only were below 40% . The students 
displayed quite unusual keenness and interest in their work, and have, 
of their own initiative, organised a Law Students' Debating Society in 
Llandudno, where some four or five Law Moots have already been held. 

Five certificates of attendance have been issued to students who have 
completed their compulsory Statutory Period, but it is understood that 
they intend voluntarily to continue attending the lectures of the School. 

Five of the 16 classes of the year have been taken by Mr. H. J. S. 
Jenkins and the remainder by the writer. 

INTERNATIONAL POLITICS. 

Professor C. K. Webster. 

In Mr. Sydney Herbert's absence some of the work of the main course 
in International Politics devolved upon me and I was very glad to have 
an opportunity of getting more closely acquainted with the undergraduate 
students of the Department of Political Science. They showed the keenest 
interest in their subject which was mainly concerned with the structure 
and functions of the League of Nations. The work of Mr. Brinley Thomas 
who was awarded a scholarship was distinguished. I also gave, as usual, 
a course of lectures on the Diplomatic History of the Nineteenth Century 
and a course of public lectures on various aspects of International Poli- 
tics. A special lecture on the Armistice was given on November nth. 

Miss Lilian Friedlander was in residence throughout the year as 
deputy for Mr. Sydney Herbert. She gave a course of lectures on the 
I.L.O. and one on Political Scjence. Both were much appreciated by 
the students and she also discharged her administrative duties during 
my absence with the greatest success. The good wishes of all will go 
with her across the Atlantic where she intends to study at the important 
William Henry Page School of International Politics at the John Hop- 
kins University. 

There were no Wilson Students owing to lack of funds, but Mr. 
Awad of the London School of Economics, was in residence for two 
terms. Mr. If or Powell, who went out to the University of Michigan 
with a Rigg Fellowship, has been awarded while in the United States, 
a Laura Spelman Rockfeller Fellowship for two years and he will go to the 
Phillipines to investigate conditions there. Mr. Bagnall was appointed 
as Regional Organiser in the League of Nations Union and Mr. 
Maccoby has been teaching International Politics at Pomona College in 
Southern California. 



8o 



The Library has been well used by readers and as a centre for 
discussion groups of which several have functioned during the year. One 
organised in co-operation with the Department of Economics by Miss 
Friedlander has carried out important researches on the agenda of the 
Economic Conference. It has been in touch with the Secretariat of 
the League of Nations at Geneva. 

A number of Teachers' Conferences were held by me in South Wales 
under the auspices of the Teachers Association and with the co-opera- 
tion of the educational authorities. The attendance was excellent 
and I have been immensely impressed with the zealous intention of 
the teachers to deal with this great problem. It can only be solved by 
the close co operation of all those dealing with education, and I have 
valued very highly the opportunities, which I have obtained, through 
the valuable Gregynog Advisory Education Committee of the Welsh 
National Council of the League of Nations Union, of meeting my colleagues 
in the schools. I hope that such co-operation between the Department 
and the teaching profession may become a normal feature of its work. 

I have also given a number of public addresses on the League of 
Nations and kindred subjects to various educational and other bodies 
including the University Colleges of Bangor, Cardiff and Swansea, the 
Barry Intermediate Schools and the Annual Conference of Educational 
Associations. My address to this last body has been published under 
the title The Teaching of World Citizenship. 

I was also a delegate at the meeting of the Federation of League of 
Nations Societies at Aberystwyth, and was thus able to participate in a 
gathering which was made so memorable by the wonderful spirit of 
hospitality, goodwill and keen interest in the League of Nations, which 
was displayed by the University College, the town of Aberystwyth, 
the County of Cardiganshire and indeed by the whole of Wales. 

I attended the Sixth Assembly of the League of Nations at Geneva in 
September, 1925, and the Extraordinary Session in March, 1926. In 
April and May I visited Paris where I conducted researches in Foreign 
Office Archives. I then went to Vienna where I delivered six 
lectures before the University, and had many valuable conversa- 
tions with public men. From Vienna I went to Buda-Pesth 
and then I travelled to Cluj in Roumania, where I gave two lectures before 
the University on the League of Nations. Afterwards I was able to 
make an extended trip through Transylvania to Bucharest and Bessarabia 
and back up the Danube to Belgrade. Everywhere I was treated with 
the greatest kindness. In Roumania especially all sections of the popula- 
tion vied with one another in generous hospitality. I was thus able 
to study in some detail the elections, which were proceeding during the 
time of my visit, having conversations not only with officials and mem- 
bers of ,the Government but also with leaders of the opposition and the 
Minorities. Her Majesty the Queen of Roumania also received me in 
private audience. 

I hope to attend the next Assembly of the League of Nations in Septem- 
ber and I have been invited to lecture before the Nobel Committee of the 
Norwegian Parliament in October. 

My colleague, Mr. Sydney Herbert, has been in the United States 
since September last as a Laura Spelman Rockfeller Fellow. He has 
spent one term at Harvard University, one term at the University of 
Chicago, and he is now at Leland Stanford University in California. I 
have had the most encouraging reports of his work from many sources 
and the Department will gain in very many ways frum the results of his 
extended journey, however much he has been missed during the last 
year.

We suffered a serious loss in the first term owing to the departure of 
Dr. Frank Smith, who was appointed Professor of Education at New- 
castle. Dr. Smith was a man of unusually broad outlook and solid 
judgment and, while we rejoice at his deserving and inevitable success, 
we regret the loss of such a source of strength to our work here. Mr. 
Arthur Pinsent, M.A., B.Sc, a former student of the Education Depart- 
ment of this College, was appointed in his place. During a large part 
of the session we had to carry on without the presence of a senior man 
lecturer. This threw increased work on the remaining members of the 
staff, who responded to the necessity with great loyalty. We received 
help also from colleagues in other departments, notably from Mr. Jane 
in the teaching of history, Miss Woodward in the teaching of Classics, 
and from Mr. King and Mr. Piatt in the supervision of school practice. 

In the history of Education we continue to be indebted to our 
colleagues in other departments for lectures on sections of the work 
in which they are specially interested. 

The Reverend Herbert Morgan, Professor Norman Jones, of the Theo- 
logical College, and the Reverend T. A. Roberts, of St. Michael's, and 
Professor Fleure continued their courses of lectures on the Bible. 

Professor Foster Watson lectured as usual to the degree and post- 
graduate classes in the second term.

i. Degree Work. 

The weekly help given by the instrumental students to the degree 
students was continued with great benefit to the latter, and an interesting 
development has occurred ; for this session the degree students them- 
selves have formed a quartet to play over their own exercises. The 
following is a tabulated list of degree efforts and results : —

By the above tabulated list it will be seen that only 14 students 
registered for the Diploma Course, as against 19 last Session. A still more 
unsatisfactory feature of this list is noteworthy, namely, that no single 
second year student passed. This result is due to the greatly increased 
Arts requirement introduced by the Senate last year, and now for the 
first time clearly operative. Five of the six fairing students are to 
be allowed to sit a further examination in September, each one only 
requiring one subject to complete. It is encouraging to note that all 
the First Year Students passed in both sections of their examination.

Sixteen students have taken singing lessons under Mr. Allen, who has 
also inaugurated a weekly sight-reading and ear-training class. The 
vocal ensemble work, other than that of the College Choral Union (re- 
hearsals held twice weekly) has again led to good results, notably at the 
Festival, when some of the best and most enjoyable performances were 
given by the small choir. The works studied by them during the session 
included Bach's God's Own Time and Choral Aria, O Happy Flock, Vaughan 
Williams's unaccompanied Mass in G Minor, Palestrina's Stabat Mater, 
Hoist's Evening Watch and Ode on a Grecian Urn, Walford Davies's Men 
and Angels, Carols, Part-Songs, by Dyson and from the Wembley Festival 
Collection, etc. 

The total numbers of choralists entered on the books were : Sopranos 
49, Altos 46, Tenors 11, Basses 13. A much larger proportion than 
usual remained faithful to the end, for the numbers taking part in the 
Festival were 36, 34, 7 and 13 respectively, three abstentions being ac- 
counted for by attendance in the orchestra. 

V. General Activities. 

(i) The chief study of the Orchestral Union during the Session has 
been devoted to Beethoven's Second and Seventh Symphonies. There 
has been an encouraging revival of interest in the task of equipping the 
College with a full Orchestra, and a small Committee has quietly worked, 
with Dr. A. B. Thomas as their Chairman, to recruit the wind-department 
and to increase enthusiasm for the auxiliary rehearsals. Dr. Thomas 
reports favourably and hopefully on the results, but it should not be 
possible to rest until the complete set of College players and of College 
instruments is found and in fully flourishing action.

(ii) The chief event of the College Choral year has been the prepara- 
tion and production of Brahms 's Requiem. The membership as a whole 
has shown constancy in rehearsal, and in quality of output, and has res- 
ponded bravely to the requests for extra rehearsals whenever made. 
More tenors and basses are wanted. The contraltos are by far the finest 
section vocally at present. 

(iii) The College Weekly Concerts have prospered and their most 
remarkable feature is the discernment shown by the audiences. Fine 
music and fine rendering both make an instant appeal and receive a keen 
listening attention. Visits have been paid by Miss Dilys Jones, Miss 
Dorothy Silk, Miss Anna Hegner, Miss Sybil Eaton, Dr. Adolf Brodsky, 
Messrs. Charles and Paul Draper (Clarinet and Bassoon), Mr. Powell 
Edwards and Mr. Owen Bryngwyn. The playing of the Beethoven 
Concerto by Miss Eaton, and of the Mendelssohn Concerto by Miss Cooke, 
were among the most enjoyable items of the whole Session. Another 
specially noteworthy item was the motet, Tu draw i'r Lien (by Dr. de 
Lloyd) a beautiful work, beautifully rendered. 

Other performances at the concerts deserving special mention here 
include Schumann's Frauenliebe und Leben, the immortal Schubert 
Quintet in C, and the Schubert Octet for strings and wind, Mozart's G 
Minor Quintet, the Brahms G Major Quintet, the slow movement of 
Dvorak's " Nigger " Quartet, and the current performances by our 
orchestra and chorus, and individual students of the works they were 
studying. It is perhaps the most encouraging feature of the whole 
work of the Department that so high a standard is attained ir the almost 
chance performances of our own singers and players at the weekly con- 
certs. Notable among these were the Beethoven Symphony movements, 
the Horn Trio first movement (Brahms), the Ravel performances, the 
Smetana String Quartet (ist Movement), and many others. 

(iv) The Friday " At Homes " of Chamber Music have again proved 
to be the happy hunting ground of the enthusiasts, and the oppor- 
tunity so wisely used by Mr. Williams for giving the students the best 
possible trial ground for first efforts. 

(v) The Open Lectures on Music given during the Session have 
again included those on Welsh Music by Dr. Lloyd Williams, on National 
Characteristics in Music, and on Folk Song by Dr. de Lloyd, and on the 
Nine Symphonies of Beethoven by myself. During my illness Dr. 
Vaughan Thomas also kindly gave one lecture on Schubert. 

VI. The Seventh College Festival (June 25 — 28 inclusive) reached 
a high level, and was held as a combined event with the Cardiganshire 
Festival for the first time. This arrangement seems, from all points of 
view, to promise well, and to be mutually beneficial. Once more the 
Festival was enhanced by the friendly presence of Dr. Vaughan Williams 
and Dr. Boult. The chief instrumental works performed were Beethoven's 
Second Symphony, Haydn's " Surprise " Symphony, Dvorak's G Major 
Symphony, Piano Concertos by Beethoven and Rachmaninoff, and 
a Violoncello Sonata by Havdn, as well as several overtures. 

The chief choral works were the Elijah, Brahms' Requiem and Hoist's 
setting of the Ode on a Grecian Urn (Keats). Vaughan Williams' Mass 
in G Minor was twice repeated and again created a deep impression. 
There seems good ground for hope that the College Festival is now a well 
established annual event — valuable alike from the educational and recrea- 
tional standpoint. It seems highly important to hold it in a yet more 
advantageous week, so that it may remain primarily useful to the students 
themselves, though of necessity it must also remain a publicly attractive 
event in order to pay its way. It seems hard to over-estimate the value 
of the Festival as an influence for good in uniting the College not only 
With Aberystwyth itself, but with its whole neighbourhood in so fine a 
common pursuit.

VII. — -It remains to mention the " Director's Hour," instituted a year 
ago, and mentioned in the last Report. This unfortunately has been 
interrupted for a long period owing to illness, but on the few occasions 
on which it was held its great value as a stimulus to the students of every 
kind in the department became still more apparent, and it is earnestly 
hoped that these hours of corporate musical life and experience will be 
developed. 

In concluding my last Report as head of the Department I may be al- 
lowed once more to express the deep debt of gratitude I feel to College 
authorities and friends, and, above all, to the music staff with whom I 
have worked, as also to the helpers in the Musical Club Committee and to 
the little band of musical enthusiasts (old students and others) in the 
town, who have never failed both to give and receive the loveliest gifts 
which music has to offer. In the exchange of these we have all seemed to 
become rich together. It is not only the 200 and more concerts which, 
like links in a chain, have bound us to one another for the good of the 
College, but the equally numerous Friday " At Homes," and the still more 
frequent practices together have sealed a fellowship in the study of good 
music which seems bound to be of some permanent use, not only to us who 
have taken part in it together, but to the College and its neighbourhood 
as a whole. The thanks I try to utter here must needs be inadequate. 

ART AND CRAFTS. 

Mr. Dan. R. Jones. 

The number of students who pursued courses in Art and Crafts during 
the session 1925-26 was 107. Their allocation being as follows : — 

From the Training Department ... ... ... ... 95 

Art and Crafts — Full Time ... ... ... ... ... 9 

Art and Crafts — Part Time ... ... ... ... ... 3 

In addition to the number of students from the Training Department 
who satisfied the Board of Education we record the following successes : — ■ 

Diploma in Crafts : Class. 

Miss Dilys Lloyd ... ... ... ... ... ... 1st. 

Miss Catherine M. Thomas ... ... ... ... ... 1st. 

Miss Glenys Evans ... ... ... ... ... ... 1st. 

Art Teachers Certificate (Society of Art Masters). 
Leonard Wallis : 2nd Class Certificate including 1st Class in one subject. 
William E. Jones : 2nd Class Certificate. 

David S. Prosser : 2nd Class Certificate including 1st Class in one subject. 

Frederick H. Child : 2nd Class Certificate including 1st Class in two sub- 
jects. 

Gladys M. Thomas : 2nd Class Certificate including 1st Class in one sub- 
ject. 

Marjorie J, Davis: 2nd Class Certificate including 1st Class in two subjects. 

One student was granted a Travelling Scholarship to enable her to 
visit Italy. 

Miss Anne Hatfield, who left last session, has been appointed Art 
Mistress at Risca County School. 

Miss Gwen Davies is engaged in illustrating a book for Sir Oliver 
Lodge.

The work of the Department is being severely handicapped through 
lack of funds. The annual grant from the College is only /40. This 
is intended to provide tools and materials for the 95 students from the 
Training Department and the dozen or so full time Art Students. It is 
quite impossible to make this sum cover the necessary expenses, and 
but for the fact that we were able to make about ^40 by holding an Art 
and Craft Exhibition the work would have suffered still more severely. 
It is urgently necessary to double this annual grant if efficiency is to 
be maintained. 

The Craft Gallery and its collection of modern Craft has grown 
greatly during the session and it gives me very great pleasure to express 
my deepest gratitude to Mr. Greenslade for the invaluable help which he 
continues to give. The Gallery has been of the greatest boon to the 
Students. 

We acknowledge gratefully a gift from Dr. G. H. Green — a book 
•on Drawing and Design.

During the last two sessions a sum of money has been set apart for the 
purpose of binding the numerous works which had accumulated during 
recent years and which had remained unbound for lack of funds. The 
bulk of the valuable mathematical and scientific periodicals located in the 
Science Library has now been bound, but much still remains to be done 
in the General Library. The Joint Standing Committee on Library 
Co-operation is now acting and I am pleased to report that we have 
been able to further to some extent the aims of this body, and that some 
of the members of our teaching staff have been helped by it. The be- 
quest of books comprising about 1,250 volumes, referred to in the ap- 
pended report of Miss A. Cumming, Cataloguer and Librarian-in-charge, 
of the General Library, was made by the late Mr. Rowland Rees, London, 
through Principal J. H. Davies, and the donation of the Frances Power 
Cobb Memorial Trustees through the Rev, Dr. Estlin Carpenter, Oxford. 

To provide for the reception and proper classification of accessions 
becomes increasingly difficult, and I trust that this matter will receive 
the attention of the College Authorities in the near future.

The Departmental Libraries of Geography and Chemistry were cata- 
logued during the Long Vacation of 1925. This completes the catalogu- 
ing of the Seminar libraries. In the case of the Chemistry library a classi- 
fication scheme was drawn up in consultation with the Chemistry staff 
and the library was classified and provided with a shelf-list. 

With regard to the accessions I should mention the large bequest of 
books from the library of the late Mr. Rowland Rees, of 128, Brondes- 
bury Park, London, as well as the donation of books on philosophy and 
religion from the Frances Power Cobbe Memorial Trustees. 

The Science Library was counted during the Easter Vacation and the 
General Library during the long vacation. The missing list was again 
much too long, especially in the case of books on Education and 
Economics. 

A number of periodicals have been transferred to the National 
Library during the year, some permanently and some on loan. 

In August, 1925, the College Library was visited and inspected by the 
students of the Library Summer School. 

The receipt of the Rowland Rees bequest has made the question of 
Library space very urgent. 



THE AETS AND CRAFTS GALLERY. 

The Curators. 

The steady growth of the collections during the past year has 
allowed a re-grouping and re-arranging, which will greatly aid the student 
in making a comparative study of the various objects in each of the 
different sections. Another change calls for attention; recently the 
Approach Hall and Corridor to the Crafts Students' Rooms have been 
thoroughly cleaned and re-decorated for the hanging and display of small 
type collections of prints, etc., which will be varied each term. This will 
make a very useful addition to the already somewhat overcrowded wall 
space of our gallery and it will usefully augment the small room already 
allotted for this same purpose between the studios. 

Great interest has again been taken in the gallery during the past 
session, and as it becomes better known and the fine quality of the 
work displayed more fully understood and appreciated, its influence 
will assuredly be increasingly felt and valued. The additions to all 
sections have been quite important. An effort has been made to specialize 
in two distinct groups of Welsh folk-craft work of the 17th and 18th 
centuries, and a gathering of examples has already been successfully 
started. The turned and shaped pieces of woodwork in the form of 
simple, utensils for home use such as pickins, platters, eating and butter 
bowls, spoons, forks, spice boxes, rolling pins, pipes and egg stands, 
are all very interesting objects of local make and of Welsh tradition 
and should be sought for and preserved. In a very unexpected degree 
all are full of a live individuality, a charm which is always associated 
with work of this nature, 

A really important series of fine slip ware dishes with their splendid 
colour and decorations has been found and acquired. A diligent search 
has been actively carried on in all parts of Wales from Pembroke to 
Anglesey, Merioneth to Carnarvon, and each district has yielded its 
treasure. It is a little difficult at this stage of their study to group these 



9 2 



recent acquisitions, but there is no doubt that distinct types will be 
iound showing characteristic Welsh traditions of shape and enrichments, 
and certainly the small examples of wooden craftsmanship will tell a 
similar tale. These additions to the collections will it is hoped, create 
a new interest in such things, not only in the students of the College 
but their people. The very fact that they were all not only created for 
useful and homely purposes, but to a very great extent for the fun and 
pleasure of the " doing," fills them with a charm which makes them 
much more interesting and appealing than the work of the over-trained 
and often uninspired craftsman of to-day. They should be sought for and 
preserved. It would be an excellent thing if a group of students whose 
homes are, say, in Pembrokeshire or any other Welsh county or district, 
would gather examples and display them on loan for a short time in the 
Gallery — it would do much to help arouse a keen interest and would help 
also to save them for posterity. It would be possible then to see how 
those of the North, Mid. and South Wales differed or were influenced 
by each other and how, by obtaining also some Irish, Scotch and English 
examples, the study could be carried much further. 

In regard to the Pottery, an attempt will be made, when sufficient 
materials are available, to find out the districts in which they were made 
and again in what way the work, designs, and decorations carried out 
special local traditions. The old kilns and their sites must be discovered 
and explored and all particulars that are possible obtained about their 
story and the efforts of their Pottery. Waste heaps near such sites should 
yield broken pieces which would be of great value. How the output of 
North and South Wales differed and how the work of Staffordshire and 
Derbyshire influenced the Welsh craftsman can be studied only when more 
research has been accomplished in a proper and thorough manner. 

Again various groups of modern crafts have been augmented consider- 
ably — three fine etchings by Robert S. Austin — " Sisters of Assisi " ; 
" A Roman Madonna " ; " The Blind Beggar of Tivoli." All are etched 
with a splendid line reminding one of the best Italian work of the 16th 
Century and exhibiting quite a new feature of modern etching. The 
plates were etched in Italy. Again some fine examples of Graham 
Sutherland have been added to those acquired last year — " Pecken 
Wood " and the " Village." Their treatment show the influence of 
Calvert, Palmer and Griggs on the younger men of to-day. The two very 
fine prints from very recent plates by Fred Richards have also been 
added to those examples already possessed — " The Battle of Waterloo 
Bridge " — " The Truce." The other is again an etching of an interesting 
riverside study. A fine lithograph in colour by Spencer Pryse, " The 
Sleeping Child " and two others of flowers by Miss Hallward have been 
purchased as well. These are only a few of those added during the year. 

At the Paris Exhibition last year an opportunity occurred of pur- 
chasing twelve pieces of recent French pottery by such well-known crafts- 
men as Delaerche, Decoeur, Chaplet, Lenoble, Simmin and Serre. Five 
pieces of glass by Lalique were also obtained. They will form the nucleus 
of what it is hoped will be a serious attempt to gather some fine examples 
of recent contemporary French craft work, particularly of Pottery, 
Glass and Prints. 

Purchases of the work of English potters were made at the Annual 
Show of the Potters Guild in London, the Red Rose Guild at Manchester, 
and various other exhibitions. They included work by Charles Vyse, of 
Chelsea, W. Staite Murray, of Brockley, Wilfred Norton of Hampstead, 
Phoebe Stabler of Poole, Frances E. Richards, of Highgate, Bernard 
Leach, of the St. Ives Pottery, Cornwall, and Reginald F. Wells, of 
Storrington, Sussex. These have made a fine addition to the already 
rather large collection. Many others have also been added. 



93 



An opportunity occurred in 1925 of acquiring from the Garnham 
Sale a selection of fine Chinese, Japanese and Indian bronze figures, chiefly- 
rare religious deities as well as many examples of porcelain and pottery. 
The commencement of an attempt to form a small type collection of 
the art of the Far East. 

Specimens of stone implements from the West Indies and jade ones 
from New Zealand were also acquired, besides a remarkably designed 
pipe in black polished shale with totemic carvings from the Queen Charlotte 
Islands, quite equal to the very fine example in the British Museum. 
An extremely interesting collection of polished agates was also purchased 
and has been transferred to the geological collection. Fine types of 
Chinese and Japanese pottery have been added, including good examples 
of the renowned Bezin stoneware. Additions have been made to the 
collections of English small table glass, chiefly blown porcelain, and books 
recently published on the Crafts. 

The cataloguing of the collection of English woodcuts, acquired in 
1924, numbering more than 5,000, illustrating the period i860 — 70, has 
been completed and our especial thanks are due to Mrs. Dan. Jones 
for accomplishing such an important piece of work. These splendid prints 
perfectly illustrate the work of this great period of English wood engrav- 
ing for illustration. 

Amongst the gifts a very important and valuable one must be recorded. 
It consists of 21 very fine pieces of American Indian Basket Work 
received from Mrs. D. C. Davies, sister-in-law of the late Prin- 
cipal. It is a very generous and welcome gift indeed and will add very 
greatly to the interest of the gallery. They were gathered from all 
parts of the United States, including California, Arizona, Alaska, Washing- 
ton, North West Coast, Vancouver Island, Queen Charlotte Islands, etc. 
The now world-renowned University collection at the Ashmolean at Oxford 
and the Fitzwilliam at Cambridge each started in quite a small way and 
with the individual gifts of one or two collectors. Little did these pioneers 
dream of the great treasure stores that would result from their early 
efforts. So perhaps a 100 years hence when these fine examples of 
Craftwork are housed in a worthy building on the Hill, those who visit 
them will appreciate and value very greatly these generous gifts of to-day. 
Now that the foundation has been slowly and carefully made, progress 
should proceed in a way that will make the acquiring of new objects easier, 
and greater discretion and care will be possible in the selecting of the new 
acquisitions.

HALLS OF RESIDENCE FOR WOMEN STUDENTS. 

Senior Warden : Mrs. K. Gutiikelch. 

As my first session's work here closes, it is a pleasant 
matter for me to bear witness to the efficiency of my colleagues, Miss 
Macgregor, Miss Turner and Miss Bedson, whose services the Halls of 
Residence have been fortunate enough to retain during the past session, 
and who helped me greatly in my initial work. 

The health of the women students has been remarkably good, only 
one slight case of German measles breaking the record. The sanatorium 
at Glen View was thus scarcely used, but the services of our trained nurse, 
Miss Thould, were fortunately secured throughout the session. 

The decoration of 26 study-bedrooms is to be done during July, 
but no other considerable work can be undertaken this summer, owing 
to the long Summer Schools. At Carpenter Hall the house known as 
" 39/' was decorated inside during the Easter Vacation. 

The number of students in residence during the session 1925 — 26 
has been approximately the same as during the previous year. 

Alexandra Hall ... 191 

Carpenter Hall ... 56 y Total — 272. 

Mynachty 25 J 

It is likely that there will be about the same or slightly fewer students 
next session. 

It seemed wise to the Hostels Committee to give up Mynachty and 
to prepare to open a third hostel for women in the building formerly 
used as a men's hostel. Plynlymon has therefore been le-decorated 
and repaired throughout, and with the necessary re-arrangement of 
furniture bids fair to become a dignified Hall of Residence for any number 
up to about 70 women. Arrangements for appointing a Warden there 
are now in train. 

During the whole month of August I shall be on duty with the 
entertainment at Alexandra Hall 01 five Summer Schools — in Music, 
Library Service, Rural Science, Mathematics and for teachers under 
the Central Association for Mental Welfare. 

I have also undertaken to accommodate about 60 foreign delegates 
to the tenth Plenary Congress of the International Federation of League 
of Nations Societies. They will be at Alexandra Hall between June 
29th and July 3rd. 

Thanks to much generous kindness shown me by those connected 
with U.C.W. in very various branches, I have enjoyed a happy session,, 
and look forward hopefully to the work of the future.

Although the general work of the Corps was hampered by the Govern- 
ment's declaration of a " State of Emergency," it is gratifying to be able 
to report a year of steady progress. The Corps is in a healthy state both 
as regards personnel and finance. The present headquarters though 
more convenient than those in the Agricultural Department's buildings 
are still inadequate. The room above the Office is needed as a store 
for clothing and equipment. 

TRAINING. 

A. Easter. 

Three Officers and Sixty-four Officer Cadets returned to College 
four days before the commencement of Summer Term to take part in what 
proved to be a highly successful week-end training. 

The Corps had as guest lecturer Capt. R. S. D. Stuart (Adjutant of the 
Birmingham and Bristol Universities O.T.C.), whose lectures were most 
entertaining and instructive, and who reported most favourably on 
the work done. 

B. — Special Camp. 

To take the place of the annual Training cancelled owing to the 
industrial situation, a special camp of eight days' duration was held at 
Aberystwyth from the 19th to 26th June, 1926, by per- 
mission of the War Office. Tents were pitched in the Vicarage Field 
and aU meals were served in the College Refectory. 

The special objects of this training were to complete the Musketry 
Classification Practices and the practical part of Certificates "A." and 
" B." The examination was held on Friday, 25th June, Captain Watson, 
D.S.O., Adjutant, 7th R.W.F., and Captain Travers, R.A., Adjutant, 
102 F.A. Brigade, being the examining officers. The following were 
successful : — 

" A." L/C Griffiths, Glyndwr John. 

Cdt. Owens, Thomas Meredyth. 

L/C Samuel, Joseph Tudor. 
"B." Cdt. Davies, David Stanley. 

Cdt. Davies, Maldwyn. 

Cpl. Jones, Elvet. 

Musketry. 

There has been a marked improvement in the shooting this year, no 
less than 37 qualifying as first class shots. 

Prizes.

Inspection and Reports. 

(1) The Corps was not inspected this year by aD Officer from the 
War Office, and no report has yet been received from that Office. 

(2) The Vice-Principal (Professor Edward Edwards, M.A.) visited 
the special camp on Friday, June 25th, 1926. 

A ck n owledgments. 

Captain T. Campbell James, D.Sc, continues to render valuable 
service to the Corps as Secretary of the Military Education Committee. 
My thanks are due to him and to my brother Officers for their assistance.

AGRICULTURE. 

Professor J. Jones Griffith. 

The number of students pursuing the various courses in the Agricul- 
tural Department was as follows : — 



Degree Course : ist year ... ... ... ... ... 3 

2nd year ... ... ... ... ... 5 

3rd year ... ... ... ... ... 4 

4th year ... ... ... ... ... 2 

Post Graduate (Research) ... ... ... 4 

Diploma in Agriculture : 2nd year ... ... ... ... 12 

3rd year ... ... ... ... 4 

Diploma in Dairying : ist year ... ... ... ... 6 

2nd year ... ... ... 6 

Short Course in Agriculture ... ... ... ... ... 32 

Continuation Course in Agriculture ... ... ... 2 

Special Course in Agriculture ... ... ... ... 1 

Clean Milk Course for Sanitary Inspectors ... ... ... 22 

Ten Weeks' Course in Dairying and House Management ... 37 

Special Course in Practical Dairying (1 term) ... ... 9 



Speaking generally, the students worked throughout the session with 
marked industry. Four students sat the University Degree Examina- 
tion, three of whom were successful. Seven students completed the 
College Diploma in Agriculture and four qualified for the College Diploma 
in Dairying. A number of our students entered for the examinations 
of the National Agricultural Examination Board. Ten of them satisfied 
the examiners in Part 1 of the N.D.A. examination and three were success- 
ful in completing the Final Stage of the examination, while one qualified 
for the National Diploma in Dairying. Two post-graduate research 
students were awarded the M.Sc. Degree. Several students who had 
recently completed their courses secured important appointments during 
the year. In this connection, special mention may be made of Mr. D. 
Idris Evans, who had been a promising student of the Agricultural and 
of the Chemical Departments, who has just been appointed to be the 
Scientific Expert to the " Tea Planters Association," Ceylon. 

The Short Course class held during the Michaelmas Term was attended 
by a somewhat smaller number of students than usual, but the amount and 
quality of work performed by the class was much better than in previous 
years. Several members of this class have indicated a desire to return 
next session with a view to pursuing the Degree or the Diploma Courses. 

There appears to be throughout the CoUege area an increasing 
demand for the services of the Staff of the Agricultural Department. 
Inquiries are received in connection with every aspect of practical Agri- 
culture. All members of our Advisory Staff have been working under 
great pressure in order to meet the requests for advice and the demands 
for investigating various local problems. During the year under re- 
view, the scope of the Advisory work of the Department was extended 
by the appointment of Mr. S. B. Thomas, M.Sc, to act as Dairy Bacterio- 
logist with a view more especially to render assistance to farmers and dairy 
men in connection with the production and distribution of Clean Milk. 

During the Easter Vacation, the members of the Staff of the Depart- 
ment co-operated with Medical Officers of Health and with the Welsh 
Department of the Ministry of Agriculture to provide a special course of 
lectures and demonstrations to Sanitary Inspectors. The main object 



98 

of the course was to provide information and guidance that could be help- 
ful to farmers and local authorities in connection with the administration 
of the Milk and Dairies Act and the various Milk Orders of the Ministry of 
Health. The Course was attended by 22 Inspectors, drawn from various 
parts of Mid and South Wales. Requests have been received for a 
similar course to be provided again next Session. 

During the Easter Term, the Department's Staff met the Agricul- 
tural Organisers of the Counties in Conference and discussed a number 
of problems in connection with agricultural education and research with 
special reference to the requirements of our own areas. 

It is with deep regret that I have to record the great loss the Depart- 
ment has suffered in the passing away of Captain R- D. Williams, 
M.R.C.V.S. He was an old student of the College and as Instructor in 
Veterinary Science he had been a member of the Staff of the Agricultural 
Department for many years'. His personal qualities enabled him to com- 
mand the esteem and confidence of staff and students alike. 



In conclusion I wish to acknowledge the very efficient and loyal 
services of all members of the Staff of the Agricultural Department. 
I also much appreciate the valuable co-operation of the Professors of Chem- 
istry, Physics, Botany, Zoology, Geology, Economics and Law, who 
willingly did all that was possible to meet the special requirements of 
our agricultural students. 



AGRICULTURAL CHEMISTRY. 

Mr. T. W. Fagan. 

The number of students attending the different courses during the 
past session was as follows : — 

Research ... ... ... ... ... ... 2 

Degree (Final) ... ... ... ... ... ... 2 

Degree (Subsidiary) ... ... ... ... ... 6 

Diploma Course in Agriculture (2nd Year) ... ... 12 

Diploma Course in Agriculture (3rd Year) ... ... 3 

Diploma Course in Dairying (1st Year) ... ... 6 

Diploma Course in Dairying (2nd Year) ... ... 6 

Short Course in Agriculture ... ... ... ... 32 

Continuation Course in Agriculture ... ... ... 22 

The work of the students taking both the final and subsidiary classes 
was of a satisfactory character and all were successful in their examina- 
tions. 

Six of the students taking the College Diploma in Agriculture were 
successful in completing their course in Chemistry. In addition, six 
students of the Department presented themselves for examination in Agri- 
cultural Chemistry for the National Diploma in Agriculture, of which 
five were successful. The short course students were all keen and showed 
a live interest in the subject, particularly in its bearing on the practical 
side. Naturally at the commencement those who had a previous 
grounding in Chemistry were in a better position to follow the course, 
but it was encouraging to find that towards the end, the students who 
had a good knowledge of Agricultural practice showed an equal grasp 
of the subject. It is worthy of note that 60 per cent, of the short course 
students returned for the Continuation Course. 



99 



The Research Work carried out in the Department has been con- 
tinued on the lines indicated in last year's report, and considerable 
progress in certain directions has been made. During the session Mr. 
R. E. Evans has completed " A Study on Bog Hay " which he success- 
fully presented as a thesis for the degree of M.Sc. Mr. J. E. Watkin 
has been working on " The Changes in the Chemical Composition of 
Oats during the formation and ripening of the Grain," and " The Influence 
of Manuring on the Yield and Chemical Composition of Mangolds." Mr. 
Pro van on " The Bearing of the Mineral Constituents of certain fodder 
plants upon their Nutritive Value." 

A brief resume of the work in hand is as follows : — 

(a) A comparison of the chemical composition of indigenous and 
commercial varieties of the same grass as pasture, hay and 
aftermath. 

(b) An investigation into the value and best method of managing 
Italian Ryegrass, when sown in the corn, so as to produce 
the greatest amount of nutritious keep in April. 

(c) The influence of slag, compost and kainit on the composition 
of Bog land pasture. 

(d) Comparison of the nutritive value of the straw and grain of 
seven varieties of Barley grown at four centres in Merioneth- 
shire. 

(e) Comparison of the nutritive value of the straw and grain of 
six varieties of Oats grown at two centres in Merionethshire. 

In connection with the above work, I desire to express my apprecia- 
tion of the valuable suggestions and criticism of the Staffs of the Agricul- 
tural Department and Plant Breeding Station. 

In conclusion, I wish to place on record my sincere thanks to my 
colleague, Mr. R. O. Davies, for his wholehearted and loyal support.

AGRICULTURAL BOTANY. 

Miss Kathleen Sampson. 

The following courses were given in the Department and were attended 
by the number of students stated : — 

Degree ... ... ... ... ... ... ... 6 

Agricultural Diploma : Courses III. and IV. ... ... 9 

Course V. ... ... ... 7 

Dairy Diploma : Courses I. and II. ... ... ... 6 

Dairy Bacteriology : Course VI. ... ... ... ... 8 

Short Course in Agriculture (Michaelmas Term). Course I. 32 

Continuation Course in Agriculture (Lent Term). Course II. 22 

The average standard among the degree students was higher than 
in the previous year and all passed in the degree examinations. The 
theoretical work was good on the whole, but the field work was poor 
in spite of the fact that more time was allowed for this branch in the 
session than in previous years. 

The standard of work among the second year diploma students was 
very high, the class including four students of outstanding merit and 
keenness. Two of these were asked to assist in the experimental work 
at the Welsh Plant Breeding Station during the summer vacation and 
I have pleasure in stating that their work was valuable ?nd untiring. 
One of the students, Mr. I. G. Lewis, is able to render the same assistance 
this year. 

The average quality of the work of the first year dairy class was 
higher than in the past session, 

It had been found necessary to make some alterations in the arrange- 
ment of courses to meet the needs of agricultural diploma students, who 
now attend for three sessions of two terms each. This is the first session 
in which the new arrangement has been in operation and it promises to 
be satisfactory. It is, of course, to be regretted that students taking 
botany as a subject are absent in the summer term, but every effort is made 
to fit in the essential field work early in the Michaelmas Term, and to- 
wards the close of the Lent Term. 

Eight students sat for the N.D.A. examination in Agricultural 
Botany, and seven passed successfully. 

Seven students were awarded the College Diploma in Agriculture 
and the Diploma in Dairying. 

This is the second year in which no agricultural students taking 
Honours in Pure Botany have conducted researches in the Department. 
Mr J. G. Davies, B.Sc, holding a scholarship from the Department of 
Industrial and Scientific Research, continued his investigations relative 
to Cocksfoot undei the supervision of Professor Stapledon. 

During the regrettable absence of Professor Stapledon, through 
illness, Mr. William Davies, M.Sc., gave courses of lectures to degree, 
diploma and short course students on grasses and clovers. The Depart- 
ment is greatly indebted to Mr. Davies for the valuable help he has 
given in this and in the previous year, and also to Mr. T. J. Jenkin, 
M.Sc, for two special lectures on Wheat and to Mr. M. G. Jones for 
two lectures on his own researches with Oats. 



10 1 

Mr. D. W. Davies, B.Sc, the Adviser in Mycology, has again ren- 
dered assistance with a course of lectures to the Continuation Course 
students, and his help in this and other directions is much appreciated. 

Mr. M. A. H. Thicker has continued his work on the effect of dura- 
tion of daylight on the flowering and fruiting of plants and in co-operation 
with members of the staff of the Plant Breeding Station, he has completed 
some work on the correlation between the germination and growth of 
Oat samples and the conditions under which the grain was produced 
and harvested. 

I have continued my studies on the Smut diseases of cereals, in 
particular treatment for bunt in wheat, and the effect of bunt on the 
growth of the plant, in which problem I have co-operated with Mr. 
D. W. Davies. Further v/ork is in progress on the factors which influence 
the infection of Oats by loose and covered Smut and on certain diseases 
of red clover. The work is made possible by the assistance of the staff 
and the ample facilities of the Plant Breeding Station which are available 
to me by the kindness of the Director. The Station is also of the greatest 
value as an unfailing source of material for classes in the Department.

WELSH PLANT BREEDING STATION. 

Director : Professor R. G. Stapledon. 
Temporary Director : Mr. T. J. Jenkin. 

Owing to ill-health Professor Stapledon was granted long leave of 
absence and left Aberystwyth at the end of February, 1926. While 
the main reason for his absence is keenly regretted by all members of 
the staff, we sincerely hope that it will prove of the greatest possible bene- 
fit to him and ultimately to the Station. His visit to the Antipodes 
will bring us into still closer contact with investigators in that part 
of the world, and with their problems and methods of work, and will 
provide the Station with a wider outlook, while at the same time it will 
assist us in forming plans for the future development of the work at 
present in progress. 

As in past seasons, many parties of Welsh farmers have visited 
the Station, and it is interesting to note that the more distant counties 
are showing a distinct increase of interest in the work. In addition 
to farmers from each county in the College area, an excellent party from 
the border county of Hereford visited the Station. 



102 



In June, Lord Bledisloe, Sir Daniel Hall and other members of the 
Block Grant Inquiry Committee paid us a brief visit, while, as in previous 
years, investigators from the Dominions and foreign countries in addition 
to home investigators have been welcomed. 

By arrangement with the Colonial Office, Mr. J. Pirie, Superintendent 
of Agriculture in the Gambia, spent about two months at the Station 
studying our methods in plant breeding. 

Further greatly needed laboratory accommodation has been secured 
by the erection of six rooms at the Agricultural Buildings. 

Excellent progress has been made on the investigational side and 
the results of selection and actual breeding work are becoming increasingly 
interesting, while at the same time they give excellent promise for the 
future. Farmers and investigators alike who visit the Station, find in 
these results a source of great interest in spite of the fact that they are 
viewed from different standpoints. 

The work of those investigators who are less intimately connected 
with actual breeding and selection is equally interesting and important. 
These results are of great practical value, while at the same time the 
methods developed and the results themselves will prove of the greatest 
assistance in the future development of the selection and breeding work. 

The assistance of the staff of the Agricultural Botany Department 
and that of the Advisers is greatly appreciated. This makes it possible 
to study aspects of the work which could not otherwise be done without 
important additions to the present Plant Breeding Station Staff. It 
also makes possible the study of plant diseases and insect pests, while 
by means of this assistance too, the chemical analysis of the plants dealt 
with is being carried out. 

It is a pleasure also to acknowledge the assistance given by those 
members of the staff concerned with accounts, translations and general 
clerical and recording work, 

The appointment of Mr. J. W. Watkins as Superintendent of the Farm 
and Gardens has resulted in greater co-ordination and more satis- 
factory distribution of labour, so that during the year the outdoor working 
arrangements have been very satisfactory. 

The continued special facilities granted by the Authorities of the 
Welsh National Library are proving of great value in assisting us to 
keep in close touch with current literature. 

Here I may be allowed to place on record my appreciation of the 
most cordial assistance and co-operation given by the entire staff during 
the regretted absence of Professor Stapledon,

LAND SURVEYING AND BUILDING CONSTRUCTION. 

Mr. G. T. Bassett. 

The Classes in Land Surveying and Farm Building Construction 
were attended by twelve students. Two of them had taken the course 
before and were revising their work. All the students appeared to 
take a keen interest in the course and I was pleased with the results 
of the Terminal examinations. 

Eleven students sat the N.D.A. examination in Surveying and: 
Building Construction and seven of them passed, which seems a satis- 
factojy result. 



104 

BOOK-KEEPING. 

Mr. J. L. Newbon. 

Twenty-one Agricultural and Dairying Diploma students and 
twenty- two Continuation Course students attended the course. The 
lectures given covered the elementary aspects of the subject and numerous 
examples were given of the practical application of the rules studied. The 
students showed a keen interest in the subject and many of them satis- 
factorily worked the practical exercise at the conclusion of the course. 

It is to be regretted that the amount of time the students are able 
to devote to this subject does not permit of the more advanced elements 
being taught. 

DAIRYING. 

Miss D. M. Evans. 

The number of students taking courses in Dairying during session 
1925 — 1926, was as follows : — 

1st Year Diploma in Dairying 6 

2nd Year Diploma in Dairying 6 

Ten Weeks' Course in Dairying and House Manage- 
ment 37 

Special Courses in Practical Dairying 9 

Of the students taking 2nd year Diploma, two did not return to 
College for the Easter Term. 

Four students were awarded the College Diploma in Dairying and 
one old student, Miss Dorothy Kenyon, N.D.A., was successful in gaining 
the N.D.D. The latter has been appointed as Temporary Assistant In- 
structress at the Dairy for the summer months. 

During the year, I examined Travelling Dairy Classes in some of the 
counties in the College Area and I also judged at several County Agricult- 
ural Shows. 

Six men students who take the College Diploma in Agriculture during 
the winter months eturned to College during the Easter Term for practical 
dairying. If they gain the Diploma in Agriculture, they are able in 
this way to qualify for the Diploma in Dairying by putting in the re- 
quired amount of practical work. 



DOMESTIC SCIENCE. 

Miss N. Fisher. 

The Domestic Science Department was carried on in the usual way- 
two courses of 10 weeks, commencing in May, and terminating in Septem- 
ber. Forty-three students took advantage of these courses, and the 
results were very encouraging. 

This Department has steadily improved, and is now equipped with 
every convenience for carrying out the work successfully. There is room 
for many more students, and we are still looking forward to the time 
when it will be recognised that a proficiency in the art of Domestic 
Science is absolutely necessary to every woman.

EXTRACT FROM THE LATE MR. W. E. GLADSTONE'S 
SPEECH AT NOTTINGHAM. 

The Times of September 28th, 1877. 

Let me point to another case with which I am personally 
acquainted, to show you that wherever primary education is 
loved, the higher education must be loved and taught also. 
I speak of the country of Wales, in which I have the happiness 
to spend a large portion of my time ; and there is no part of 
the population of the country — and I say it freely and boldly 
in your hearing — there are few parts which can compete with 
Wales, and there is no part which can exceed it, from one end 
of the island to the other, in the earnest, ardent, and, I may 
say, passionate love for instruction. They are a religious 
people, and a people deeply enamoured of knowledge, and 
what they have done has been done with very little assistance. 
With no assistance at all from any public fund of any kind, 
they have, within the last five or six years, founded a large 
and important College at Aberystwyth. Is it possible for you 
to have a stronger proof that the existence of a love for primary 
education does lead on, and must lead on, to every great effort 
for the establishment of higher education ?

FORM OF BEQUEST. 

I give and bequeath to the Treasurers, for the time being,

personal estate as may lawfully be bequeathed for charitable 
purposes, and preferable to all payments thereout ; for which 
Legacy the receipt of the Treasurers, for the time being, of 
the said College shall be a sufficient discharge to my Executors. 



FORM OF BEQUEST OF RESIDUE, OR SHARE OF 
RESIDUE. 

I give and bequeath all (or if so intended one equal share 
of) the residue of such part of my personal estate as I may 
lawfully bequeath for charitable purposes unto the Treasurers, 
for the time being, of the University College of Wales, Aber- 
ystwyth, for the purposes of the said College, and I direct that 
the receipt of such Treasurers shall be a sufficient discharge for 
the same.

The Elementary Class showed a considerable increase on the num- 
bers of the preceding Session, but progress was somewhat disappointing. 

Several students began well enough, only to relax their efforts before 
the end of the first term, with the result that they will have to continue at 
the same grade next Session. Six students reached a satisfactory standard 
in the test examination held in June, and of these Mr. J. J. A. Thomas 
showed the most promise. 

For the most part the Intermediate Class worked well, but several of 
its members were weak. The work of Mr. Trefor Thornley Jones calls 
for comment, as he reached a high standard in the examination after having 
begun the study of the language only in the middle of the previous session. 

The five Subsidiary students did 1 easonably well, but one was hampered 
by ill-health throughout and was unable to take the examination. The 
four who sat the examination were successful. 

At the Honours stage Miss M. M Rees was awarded a Class II., Div. 2. 
This result, three years after the passing of matriculation, must be accounted 
very creditable. She proceeds to Oxford in October to read for " Literae 
Humaniores," and should do quite well. I may mention here that Mr. Eric 
Evans, a previous student in the Department, obtained a first class in 
Classical Moderations last April. 

I wish to acknowledge my indebtedness to Miss Woodward, Professor 
Rose and Mr. Baillie Reynolds, Lecturer in Ancient History, for valuable 
help given to me throughout the Session. Classics in Aberystwyth and in 
Wales generally will suffer a grievous loss in the departure of Professor 
Rose, who has been appointed to succeed Professor John Burnet in the 
Chair of Greek at St. Andrews. Professor Rose's learning and scholar- 
ship have always been at the disposal of this Department, and of the local 
branch of the Classical Association, of which he was the founder and first 
president. 



5° 

I desire once more to thank Professor Bensly, whose lectures on 
Textual Criticism have been much appreciated. 

The Head of the Department continues to help in the production of the 
new Welsh version of the Greek Testament, under the Scheme of the Theo- 
logical Section of the Guild of Graduates. Corinthians I. was published in 
the course of last Session, while Corinthians II. should soon be ready. 
A review of Schmid's text of Aristides, Libri Rhetorici II. (Teubner) is due 
to appear in an early number of the Classical Review, also an article on 
the " Present position of Greek in Wales " (in the County Schools' Review). 

The Department is indebted to Mrs. M. E. Davies Roberts for the gift 
of several sets of photographs illustrative of Greek Art.

*Two students in their first year were granted Intermediate passes 
on the Subsidiary examination. 

fThese figures will be modified by the Supplemental examinations 
in September, when some of those who failed Intermediate in June 
are certain to pass. 

It is not without a feeling of regret that I write this, my last, report 
to Council. Next session I take up new duties as Professor of Greek at St. 
Andrews, thus severing official connections with this College, but not the 
ties of affection which bind me to it. 

The Department and the College generally have to mourn the loss 
of an old and valuable member of our staff, Mr. R. A. Pope, whose faithful 
services as a teacher of Classics will be remembered by many students, 
and whose absolute and unshaken loyalty as a colleague and friend was 
one of the greatest factors in such success as I may have achieved here. 
He was lecturing but a few weeks before his death. 



51 



As regards the other members of the Department, the devotion to 
their professional duties which I have several times commented on has 
continued during the past session. I feel that I leave to my successor 
as efficient and whole-hearted support as could be given or expected in any 
University whatsoever. 

The examination results need little comment. Mr. Howells, owing to 
circumstances quite beyond his control, had practically to do the whole 
work of the Honours course in one year instead of two. Of the four candi- 
dates for Final, three passed, which is a very good proportion in this diffi- 
cult examination. Subsidiary was rather disappointing, Intermediate 
about average. 

Publications have again been fairly numerous. The principal ones 
are as follows : — 

Book. Primitive Culture in Italy. Methuen and Co., London, 1926. 
Professor H. J. Rose. 

Another book, Blodau 0 Hen Ardd, written by me in conjunction with 
Professor T. Gwynn Jones, is now in the press (Hughes and Son, Wrexham). 
A third is in preparation, and should appear next spring. 

Articles. By Professor H. J. Rose : Greek and Roman Religion. 
(Year's Work in Classical Studies, 1926.) 

Mox {Classical Quarterly). 

Hot Weather in the Classics (Classical Review). 

The Tragedy of the Conventional Woman : Deianeira (Aberystwyth 
Studies) . 

De lone Latiari (Mnemosyne). 

Also a number of reviews, the most important being that of the new 
(fourth) edition of Chantepie de la Saussaye, Lehrbuch der Religionsgeschichte 
(Gnomon) . 

Several other articles, now in proof, should appear during the summer 
or early autumn (in Journal of Theological Studies, Transactions of the Cam- 
bridge Philological Society, and Folk-Lore) . 

By Mr. P. K. B. Reynolds : Excavations on the Site of the Roman Fort

The work of the Department on the Arts' side has been quite satis- 
factory at all stages. In the Intermediate Class Miss Dorothy Thomas, 
Miss Leonard, Miss Eluned Jones and Mr. Handel Edwards showed more 
than usual promise. No candidates were presented for Honours this year, 
but two pursued the first year's Honours course and both intend spending 
their long vacation in Germany. 

Mr. Brian Ellis was engaged in research on the development of German, 
tragedy in the early part of last century and his work is proceeding favour- 
ably. 

The Department arranged three classes at the beginning of the session* 
for Chemistry, Physics and other Science Students. Only the Chemistry 
class was satisfactory in attendance and progress ; the other two classes 
did not continue after the first term. Some other arrangements will have 
to be made in future to avoid the unnecessary waste of time and energy. 

Dr. Jensen, the part-time German assistant, will be followed next session 
by Mr. R. Herzog, a master at the Gaudig's School in Leipzig, and a part- 
time assistant in the English department of the University. The work of 
Dr. Jensen has been extremely satisfactory. Besides his work for the- 
students, he had three small classes for members of the staff, which proved 
entirely successful and were much appreciated. He also devoted much of 
his spare time in studying modern English history. Several articles by 
him on Wales and Aberystwyth College life are appearing in German 
papers and the proofs of his book on some aspects of the poetry of Wolfram 
von Eschenbach have just been returned. 

Mr. David Evans has given three public lectures in the first term of the 
session at Aberystwyth, Talybont and Barmouth, and another will be 
given at Neath in September. The usual course of four lectures on German 
tragedy was given this session again to some of the Honours English class.

I wish once more to record my indebtedness to Miss Hermia Rees for the 
excellency of her work in the Department and to Mr. John Hughes, M.A., 
and Professor Parry Williams for advice and help with some of the above 
publications.

The work of the Department was conducted on the usual lines and 
good results were obtained. The students on the whole were keen and 
industrious, but in the second term the work was more seriously inter- 
fered with, and for a longer time, than in past years by the various 
festivities connected with the Inter-Collegiate celebrations. 

Of the ten students who took Honours, two were excellent and obtained 
first classes ; they were Miss Jane Evans and Miss Lilian Shelley. Miss 
Florence Hunt was placed in the first division of the second class ; four 
students were placed in the second division of the second class, two in the 
third class, and one failed. All but one were granted the Certificate of oral 
proficiency. 

Eleven students were awarded travelling scholarships at the end 
of last session and spent a large part of the summer vacation in France. 
Eight students have just been granted travelling scholarships and arrange- 
ments have been made for them to go abroad this summer. The enormous 



54 



benefit derived from these travelling scholarships by individual students 
as well as by the French Department generally, has made it possible to es- 
tablish a very high standard in the oral and practical aspect of the sub- 
ject. In the name of the students and of the staff, I beg again to express 
our deep gratitude to the donors. 

Two students who have pursued the first year of the Honours Course 
in French have been nominated by the Board of Education for posts of 
English Assistants in Normal Colleges in France for next session. They 
will return here in October, 1928, to pursue the second year of the Honours 
Course and qualify for the degree of B.A. 

Miss Agnes M. White studied this session at the University of Paris. 
She has just been granted, after examination, the ' Diplome d'etudes 
franchises.' She will pursue here, next session, the second year of the 
Honours course in French. 

Six students are now writing, under my direction, dissertations which 
they will present in due course for the degree of M.A. 

An article by Miss E. M. Phillips on " Sainte-Beuve and the Lake 
Poets " appeared in the French Quarterly for September and December, 
1926, and another on " English Friendships of Sainte-Beuve " in the first 
number of the Bulletin of the Modern Humanities Research Association, 
1927. 

I beg again to plead for better accommodation ; the seminar and 
tutorial work has to be done at present under very unsatisfactory condi- 
tions, and a suitable room for staff and students is very urgently needed. 

I wish to express my indebtedness to Dr. A. B. Thomas, Miss E. M. 
Phillips and to my French Assistant, Mr. J. Tartinville, for their loyal and 
valuable help during this session. 



PHONETICS. 

Dr. A. B. Thomas. 

The usual classes, theoretical and practical, have been held. The 
attendance at the theory classes has not been good, owing to clashes with 
public lectures. It was not found possible to hold the theory lectures- 
during the normal College hours and so they were held at 6 p.m. on Fridays. 
I intend next session to divide the class into groups and hope in this way 
to find more convenient hours and also to pay more attention to individuals. 

The students taking Phonetics came mainly from the Modern Language 
Departments ; one came from the Department of Music. 

Professor Daniel Jones, Head of the Department of Phonetics in 
University College, London, delivered a Public Lecture in the Physics 
Lecture Amphitheatre on May, 3rd on " Phonetics and its applications." 
A Summer School in Phonetics (Welsh and French) has been arranged for 
August 6th to 1 8th, 1927, under the auspices of the Educational Hand- 
work Association. The teachers will be Professor Barbier, Mr. Stephen; 
Jones (Superintendent of the Laboratories for Experimental Phonetics, 
University College, London), and myself. 

Purchases for the laboratory during the session include a set of Gramo- 
phone records in French and an Edison Recording Phonograph. 



55 



Practical work is still hampered by lack of space in the laboratory. 
In collaboration with the Welsh* Department, I have started an investigation 
on the intonation of the Welsh Language. Work of this kind is necessarily 
slow under present circumstances. Both the Welsh Department and myself 
are involved in other activities. I hope next session to interest some of 
the students of Welsh in this problem and enlist their collaboration.

ENGLISH. 

Professor J. W. H. Atkins. 

The number of students in the Department was approximately the same 
as in the preceding session, as will be seen from the appended table. Both 
the Intermediate and the Subsidiary Classes were again very large, with 
the result that adequate supervision of the work of individual students 
was practically impossible. Happily there is some prospect of further 
assistance being available in the forthcoming session, and it is hoped that, 
with that help, the exercise work which is so essential at these earlier stages, 
may be more satisfactorily treated.

I have pleasure in stating that Dr. Odon Schram, late Fellow of the 
University, has been appointed Assistant Lecturer in English language at 
the University of Liverpool, where he will assist Professor Mawer and 
continue his work on the place-names of Norfolk. His ex- 
perience there should equip him in a high degree for undertaking similar 
work at a later date in connection with the place-names of Wales. 
Mr. Garmonsway has for some time been engaged oil An Old Norse Reader, 
and it is hoped that the work will be published by the Cambridge Press in 
the course of the current year.

At the University Examination this year Miss Agnes Kamen was awarded 
the degree of M.A. as a result of her dissertation on " The Poetry of Christina 
Rossetti." Miss Kamen is a Burmese student who has for the last three 
years been doing post-graduate work at this College, and her work through- 
out has been of an excellent kind. 

The Second Year Honours Class was if anything below the average 
in point of ability and attainments. Of the fourteen students who entered, 
one (S. G. Pearce) was placed in the First Class ; eight obtained Second 
Classes, five being placed in Class II., Div. I., the remaining three in 
Class II., Div. II.; while five others obtained Third Classes. Of the First 
Year Honours students all except one, v/ere successful in completing a 
satisfactory year's work and will in consequence proceed next year to the 
higher stages of their Honours Course. 

The work of the Pass students was eminently satisfactory. The 
details of the examination results are given above. Of the ten students 
who took the Intermediate Course with further test, six were successful. 

One pleasing feature in connection with the work of the higher stages 
is the specialised help received from other Departments, and I acknow- 
ledge with gratitude the valuable assistance given at the Honours' stage 
by Professor Barbier and Mr. David Evans. The former lectured on French 
tragedy with special reference to Corneille and Racine ; the latter on 
German tragedy with special reference to Goethe and Schiller ; and both 
courses were much appreciated. 

The generous and loyal support of Miss Winstanley and Mr. Garmons- 
way in the general work of the department must also be acknowledged 
and both are, to my knowledge, an inspiration to the students. 

HISTORY. 

Professor Edwards. 

The History Department was in the charge of Mr. L. C. Jane during 
the session 1926-27, who writes the following report. 

In this session, the new syllabus for the Department came into full 
operation. As a result, in the examinations at the Subsidiary, Final and 
Honours stages, candidates were afforded an opportunity for showing know- 
ledge not only of British and European History, but also of the history of 
the overseas dominions of the British crown, of the United States and of the 
Latin American republics. The aim of this somewhat considerable exten- 
sion of the scope of their studies is to encourage students to take a broader 
view of history and to enable them to appreciate, more especially, the great 
and increasing importance of the New World. It may be said, without 
hesitation, that the response of the students has been extremely gratifying ; 
their interest has been strongly aroused in an aspect of their subject which 
has been hitherto somewhat neglected generally both in schools and in 
universities. 

The Subsidiary class numbered thirty-one. The work done was very 
good, the standard attained in the sessional examination being appreciably 
higher than in any recent year. Not merely some, but the majority, of the 
members of the class gave proof that they had read independently and with 
both interest and profit. 

The Final class numbered sixteen, of whom thirteen were successful in 
the June examination. Here again the work was of a higher standard than 
has previously been the case. Special reference must be made to the very 
excellent work of Miss O. Goodyear, Miss V. M. Gwynn and Mr. M. E. Jones. 



57 



Under the revised syllabus, the Honours courses for the History and 
Colonial History Departments have been amalgamated, with the exception 
of the special subject offered. 

The first year Honours class numbered six, of whom one is a member of 
the Colonial History Department. The remaining five are offering the Age 
of Ferdinand and Isabella as a special subject, and have shown great en- 
thusiasm in acquiring the knowledge of Spanish needed for their subject. 
Their work has been fresh, vigorous and full of promise. 

The second year Honours class numbered seven, of whom four were 
members of the Colonial History Department. The remaining three 
offered the Age of Ferdinand and Isabella at the examination in June. 
Two, Miss Phyllis John and Miss H. M. Parffitt, were placed in the first divi- 
sion of the second class, and. their work on their special subject was of a 
very high standard. 

Three candidates offered theses for the degree of M.A., which was 
awarded to them. The thesis of Mr. Trevor Williams, on the relations 
between Britain and the Channel Islands during the middle ages, was 
especially good. 

In September, I represented the Royal Historical Society at the inter- 
national congress of Americanists, held at Rome, and had the honour to be 
elected a vice-president of the Congress. 

The thanks of the Department are due to Professor Stanley Roberts, 
who, as in previous years, took charge of the Intermediate Class, and who 
also took part in the work with the Final and Honours classes ; to Professor 
Webster, who lectured for the Department to the Final Class on nineteenth 
century history ; to Mr. Herbert and Mr. Gauld, who, during the first two 
terms of the session, had charge of the Subsidiary Class. 

PALAEOGRAPHY. 

Professor E. A. Lewis. 

The number of students requiring instruction in Palaeography was 
smaller than in any other session since the Class was instituted some fifteen 
years ago. Two post-graduate students, who attended fairly regularly, 
made satisfactory progress, and several other students were assisted from 
time to time with the Bibliography and MSS. sources pertinent to their 
special studies. 

COLONIAL HISTORY. 

Professor T. Stanley Roberts. 

The number of Intermediate Students was about the same as that of 
previous years, but the work was better, and there were fewer failures. 

The work of the Second Year Students was very good and promising. 

The Final, or Third Year, Students were few in number ; but a number 
of promising students propose to take Honours this year. 

The work of the Honours Class was good ; but no First Classes were 
awarded. 

We are fortunate in having had the very valuable services of Professor 
R. S. Rait as External Examiner for the last three years, whose advice 
on the working of the Department was most helpful.

The Subsidiary or First Year Class was somewhat larger than last year. 
The Class, as a whole, showed marked industry and intelligence, and several 
members evinced a distinct aptitude for economic study at the higher stages. 
Excellent progress was made by Miss E. J. Wilcox, Mr E. Mansel Jones, 
Mr. A. Towyn Jones, and Mr. Elwyn Thomas Griffiths. Very good work 
was also done by Miss Gwyneth Pride and Mr. G. Dyfnallt Owen, Mr. J. W. 
Phillips and Mr. Oliver Emanuel Jones. 

The Final Class, as regards quality, was a good average one. The 
majority of the members took keen interest in the sections of the course 
dealing with post-war problems on the industrial and financial sides, and the 
seminar classes held for the study and discussion of recent Government 
Reports proved interesting and profitable. Very good progress was made 
by several of the members, who intend reading for Honours next year, 
especially Mr. D. Hopkin Thomas, and Mr. D. J. Davies. The latter is to 
be congratulated upon securing an award of a Miners' Welfare Scholarship 
of ^175 to enable him to complete his Honours scheme of study next year. 
At the Final stage, one student, Mr. E. T. Harry, took the alternative 
scheme of study offered in conjunction with the courses in Agricultural 
Economics, given by Mr. A. W. Ashby and did commendably well. 

The Second Year's Honours Class was distinctly good and sound. 
All five members did very creditably in the June examinations, three being 
placed in the First Class, one Second Class, Division One, and one Second 
Class, Division Two. 

Research — During the session Higher Degrees were awarded to three 
former Honours students of the Department — the degree of B.Litt. (Oxon.) 
to Mr. Edgar Thomas ; the degree of Ph.D. (London) to Miss E. Hawkins, 
and the degree of M.Sc. (Wales) to Mr. J. Llefelys Davies. Investigations 
into some aspects of the History and Economics of the Welsh Coal Industry 
were also carried on by two post-graduate students in residence. Mr. 
B. Myrddin Evans assembled a substantial amount of hitherto unpublished 
data relating to the Welsh Coal Industry during the seventeenth century, 
and with the aid of the University Studentship .which he has recently 
secured, his M.A. dissertation promises to throw important and new light 
upon the Welsh Coal Industry as it obtained prior to the Industrial Revolu- 
tion. Mr. Brinley Thomas made satisfactory progress with his study of 
some of the marketing problems of the Welsh Coal Trade during the post- 
war period. In the course of the year, I myself published the data of the 
extant Welsh Port Books together with a complete analysis of the Welsh 
Customs Accounts for the latter half of the sixteenth century (1550 — 1603).

I am much indebted to the Cymmrodorion Society for undertaking the 
publication of a volume, to which I have devoted my long vacations over a 
number of years. Mr. J. Morgan Rees, in addition to preparing a sugges- 
tive and useful pamphlet on the Industrial Revolution in Wales, has pub- 
lished a valuable monograph on " Unemployment as an International 
Problem." 

It is my pleasure, once again, to record my thanks to my colleagues for 
their willing and efficient assistance. I regret the departure of Mr. William 
King, who has rendered excellent service for several years, and has also 
kept the Department in close touch with the valuable work of the Welsh 
School of Social Service. Mr. King carries with him the best wishes of the 
Staff and students of the Department to his new sphere of service as an 
Inspector under the Board of Education. 

INTERNATIONAL POLITICS. 

Mr. Sydney Herbert. 

Owing to Professor C. K. Webster's absence in the Far East, it is not 
possible to include a report by him in this issue, but the period will be 
reviewed in next year's volume. 

Professor Webster gave his usual series of lectures to students of the 
Department of History on the Diplomatic History of the Nineteenth Century. 
I delivered my usual courses of lectures to students of the Department of 
Economics and Political Science at both the Final and Honours stages. 
The work done by the undergraduates in both groups was eminently satis-^ 
factory. 

In collaboration with my colleague, Dr. G. H. Green of the Department 
of Education, I am pursuing an enquiry into the attitude of children towards 
other races and nationalities. This work has been made possible by a grant 
from the Welsh Council of the League of Nations Union, assistance which is 
here gratefully acknowledged. The enquiry is still only in its preliminary 
stage, but, thanks to the skill and knowledge of Dr. Green, there is already 
reason to believe that it will give useful results.

Intermediate Stage. — With five or six exceptions, this Class did not 
contain very promising students. The work done was of moderate quality, 
and in the June examination a large number of the students reached a posi- 
tion only just safely above the pass line. Of the four students that entered 
for the Further Test not one reached the standard required for entry on the 
First Year Honours Course next Session. 

Subsidiary Stage. — Eight members of this Class were first year students, 
and, with one exception, they made very good progress. There were six or 
seven really excellent students at this stage. Although eight failed in the 
June examination, the work done by the Class as a whole was in the main 
satisfactory. The best members were Mr. J. Glanmor Davies, Miss L. 
Knoyle and Mr. W. Beynon Davies. 

Final Stage. — This year, the work of the members of the Final Class 
was of uniformly good quality, some of the first year Honours students 
who took the course showing very good promise. Three students distin- 
guished themselves by their high position in the Class, — Miss Myfanwy 
Rees, Miss Margaret Ellis and Mr. R. R. Thomas. 

Honours Stage. — There were eight students in the Second Year Honours 
Class, and all worked very diligently. Although no first class was gained 
in the June examination, the performance of those who were placed in 
the First Division of the Second Class, especially, viz., Miss Beti Lloyd 
Roberts, Mr. T. H. J. Rees, Mr. T. Gwynn Jones and Mr. T. Hevin Williams, 
was most creditable. A good deal of the work done by these students was of 
first-class quality, and in many respects it was disappointing that not one 
quite reached the First Class in the sessional examination. Of the other 
students, three were placed in the Second Division of the Second Class, and 
one in the Third Class. Five members of the Class, who had taken Breton 
as their special subject, were awarded travelling scholarships by the College 
to enable them to visit Brittany during the summer vacation. 

Miss Margaret Enid Griffith, B.A., who took a very good " First " in 
the Department three years ago, and who is the holder of a University 
Studentship, presented a thesis for the Degree of M.A. in the Department of 
Welsh Literature. Her work was very highly praised and the degree was 
awarded to her with distinction. 

It gives me very great pleasure again this year to express my grati- 
tude to Professor T. Gwynn Jones for the great help so willingly given 
by him to the Department throughout the session. 

CELTIC RESEARCH AND PALAEOGRAPHY. 

Mr. Timothy Lewis. 

Research : 

I. A Glossary of the Red and White Book, Mabinogion, giving every 
word and every form in the texts. The tales are treated more as historical 
than mythological documents as hitherto. This is now ready for the press 
and will be published by one of the London Societies unless it is too big. 
(It has been left to the Secretary who will not be back in London till next 
month.) 

II. An article on the history of some Welsh Institutions, read before 
the London Philological Society and to be published in the Philologica. 

III. An article on the so-called St. Cadvan's Stone, Towyn. 
Palaeography : 

An advanced course of two lectures a week was given on Welsh Palaeo- 
graphy with exercises on mediaeval MSS. One student was working also 
on Welsh dialects and on Middle Irish.

The work done during the Session has been very satisfactory. Mr. J. 
Gwynfryn Jones obtained First Class Honours, with special commendation 
from the External Examiner. The work of the students taking the Final 
Course must also be highly commended. Mr. Iorwerth Edwards, a former 
student of the Department, has now assumed charge of a Church at Goginan. 
The degree of M.A. was awarded, with distinction, to Miss Enid Griffith, her 
subject being Early Vaticinatory Literature in Welsh, with its relation to 
English and other material. 

The Head of the Department was asked to continue to act as chairman 
of the local group engaged in translating portions of the New Testament, 
under the scheme organised by the Theological Section of the Guild of 
Graduates. He has also been invited to edit for the Folk-Lore Society, 
as part of a larger scheme, a collection of Welsh Calendar beliefs and prac- 
tices. Publications : " Detholiad o Ganiadau," issued by the Gregynog 
Press ; " Gwaith Tudur Aled," with introduction and notes, two volumes, 
University of Wales Press Board. The cordial co-operation and assistance 
of the Head of the Language Department is most thankfully acknowledged. 

PHILOSOPHY. 

Professor W. Jenkyn Jones. 

The work done by the students during the Session, and the successes 
won by them at the June examinations were very satisfactory on the whole. 
Dr. Dan. Davies, a former student of the department, who succeeds Dr. 
Louis A. Reid, as Assistant lecturer, proved himself an efficient teacher, and 
gave valuable help at all stages. Another former student, Miss Valmai B. 
Evans, M.A., B.Litt., was entering upon her duties as Instructor in Phil- 
osophy in Goucher College, Baltimore, U.S.A., at the commencement of the 
same session. And it is a great pleasure to congratulate another former 
student, the Rev. W. R. Williams, M.A., upon his appointment as Pro- 
fessor of the Philosophy and History of Religion at the Theological College, 
Aberystwyth. His appointment was a tribute to the able way in which he 
had discharged the duties of the temporary post he had previously held in 
the same College. 

Post-graduate and Honours Stages. — I regret to say that Gwilym James, 
B.A., who holds a University studentship, was seriously ill during a large 
part of the session, and he was unable to do any work for several months. 
Since his partial recovery he has been diligent in making up for lost time, . 



62 



and he has done a great deal of necessary reading. Mr. Stephen O. Tudor, 
B. A., who held a fellowship in the Union Seminary, New York, has completed 
a year's stud}^ at that institution in the Philosophy of Religion. Miss Valmai 
Evans, M.A., is contributing a paper on ' The Philosophy of Gentile ' to the 
forthcoming number of ' Aberystwyth Studies.' Mr. Emrys Evans, B.A., a 
former student, is engaged upon the study of Mill's Ethics, and is preparing 
an M.A. thesis upon the subject. Miss Hettie Hall, B.A., who obtained 
honours a year ago, was awarded the Gladstone Prize for an Essay on " The 
Ethical basis of the problem of peace." 

Three students took the honours courses and did creditable work. 
Trefor T. Jones, B.A., who obtained a very good second class honours in 
English last year, and Emlyn Evans, obtained first class honours, and Robert 
Rees, B.A., who worked well in somewhat difficult circumstances, obtained 
second class. Trefor Jones has been recommended by the College to the 
University for a one- year studentship. 

Final Class. — The Final Class contained sixteen students. Of these, 
-twelve passed the University examination. The work of Stephen L. George, 
Mary Winifred Owen, and Howard Elwyn Rees Morris deserved special 
mention. These, and one or two other members of the class, impressed me as 
students who could attain an honours standard in the subject. 

Subsidiary and Intermediate Classes. — The Subsidiary Class was of 
tolerably even quality, and the work, though seldom distinguished, rarely 
fell below the standard of a respectable pass. A good deal of lively dis- 
cussion took place in connection with the ethical sections of the course, in 
which most of the members joined. 

The Intermediate Class contained as many as ninety-six students, and, 
as usual, the variation which they showed in intelligence and ability was 
considerable. It is at this level that most failures occur. The number of 
failures this year was twenty-six. A large proportion of the class did ex- 
cellent work, and acquitted themselves with much credit both in the tests 
held during the year and also in the sessional examination. For the first 
time for many years I was released from the larger part of the work at this 
stage. I beg to thank Professor Owen very cordially for giving a capital 
lecture on ' The method of experiment ' to the Intermediate class, and Dr. 
Dan Davies for the enthusiasm and ability with which he performed his 
duties. The efficiency of the department would be very much enhanced by 
an additional teacher. The addition of even a part-time assistant or student- 
assistant would afford much relief in lightening the work of correcting 
class-exercises at the lower stages. The Philosophical Society was active 
during two terms of the Session, and the meetings were generally well 
attended and very profitable.

Honours in Education, was awarded the M.A. degree for a thesis on " The 
psychological grounds of preference of shapes by school children." 

Our colleagues in other departments gave the usual valued help in 
parts of our work in which they have a special interest ; in particular, we are 
grateful to Miss Woodward for her help in the teaching of Classics. 

Professor Watson gave the usual course of lectures to the degree and 
post-graduate students of the department in the second term, and in addit- 
ion gave single lectures in the departments of English and History. He 
has during a tour in Spain lectured in the University of Valencia on the life 
and work of Vives. 

The following is a list of publications by members of the Department : — -

Reviews in Yr Efrydydd 

I desire to draw attention to the case for the re-organisation of the 
accommodation of the Education Department. 

1. Size of Department. 

It contains normally 300 students of whom about 100 are post-graduate.. 
The others do a certain amount of practical work, and attend lectures weekly 
during the first three years. In addition there are students taking Educa- 
tion as a degree subject. 

2. Difficulties of Administration. 

The Department is therefore larger than many Training Colleges and on 
account of necessary relations with the Board of Education, and with Secon- 
dary and Elementary Schools it necessitates a complex and extensive 
administrative system, which is peculiar to this Department of the College, 
and probably it presents problems not met with in any other Department. 
The administration demands clerical work, filing system, card indexing, and 
other details of office routine which make a central office desirable, easy of 
access to members of the staff of the Department. Moreover, the centralis- 
ing of documents, and an adequately housed filing system, etc., would 
make the detailed administration more efficient and less wasteful of time 
than at present. The various card indexes are at present scattered in 
several places. 

3. Staff and Lecture Room Accommodation. 

(a) The Staff is large on account of the size of the Department. 
The arrangements for tutorial work and school practice make 
frequent conferences between the members of the Staff 
essential. At present the Staff is housed in very different 
parts of the College property, e.g., two in No. 12, Marine Terrace, 
one in No. 1, Marine Terrace, three in rooms in the Tower. 

(b) The Examination Hall is a very inconvenient room for lecture 
purposes. The black-boards available are most indequate 
and very inconvenient in use. 

(c) Tutorial Work. — This is considered by the Staff of the 
Department to be of at least as great importance as lectures 
and it is desired to extend and intensify the tutorial work done. 
The Staff rooms at present available (see (a) above) are quite 
unsuitable for good tutorial work. 



65 



4. Library. 

At present the Library of the Department is housed partly in the 
General Library and partly in No. 12, Marine Terrace. The General Library 
is not a convenient place to house much of the necessary library material. 

The work of the Department makes it necessary that we should 
have : — 

(1) An up-to-date and representative selection of school books for : — 

(a) Assisting students during school practice. 

(b) Showing students examples of modern text books suitable 
for use in schools of various types, before the students 
commence their actual professional work. 

(2) . Pictures, maps, drawings, etc., for similar purposes. 

(3) Models. 

The present special library is housed in one small room in No. 12, 
Marine Terrace. There is not nearly enough accommodation for our needs, 
and a good deal of essential tutorial and demonstration work is im- 
possible on this account. Particularly do we need an increased number of 
pictures, maps, models, etc., and suitable means of storing these so as to 
give easy access to them by staff and students. 

In addition to the above it is essential for good work in the Depart- 
ment that we should be able to organise a more or less permanent exhibi- 
tion of apparatus for individual work, for teachers of young children, 
examples of syllabuses from various types of schools, and examples of chil- 
dren's work on loan from schools representing different methods of teaching 
and organisation. It is impossible to organise such an exhibition without 
suitable accommodation and permanent tenure where the exhibits can be 
left ' in situ ' as long as they are required. 

The laboratory side of modern educational practice is as essential 
as demonstration and experimental work in physics, chemistry, biology 
and geography and demands suitable accommodation. 

5. Practical Activities. 

Various practical activities are an essential part of the professional 
preparation of teachers. These include : — 

(a) Needlework for women. 

(b) Varied Handwork for women, including raffia work, model 
making, cardboard work, designing, bookbinding, leather 
work, etc. 

(c) Handwork for men, including Woodwork, Metal work, book- 
binding. 

(d) Drawing for men and women. 

(e) Music, 

(f) Criticism and demonstration lessons. 

This is a most important aspect of the work of the Department. In 
view of contemporary educational opinion and practice such work is an 
essential part of school activity and the success of our students in competi- 
tion for situations will depend largely on qualifications in these practical 
activities. 



66 



At present we are not doing nearly as much, nor as good work as it is 
possible to do on account of the extremely inadequate accommodation 
available, e.g., needlework and handwork for women must be done in the 
large room at the Agricultural Buildings. 

(1) There is little space available for storing material, finished or 
partly finished work, etc. 

(2) All the working material has to be put out for each session of 
the class, and put away again. This means a considerable and 
irritating loss of time and energy, particularly as the time table 
requirements upon the students render reasonably long practical 
periods difficult to arrange for so many students as invariably 
require tuition. 

(3) A great deal of the raw material has to be carried back and 
forth from No. 12, Marine Terrace to the Agricultural Build- 
ings and this is an unnecessary effort and waste of time for the 
Tutor in charge. 

In addition to all this the accommodation at the Agricultural Build- 
ings is not reasonably comfortable. 

Handwork for Men. 

Here, again, the Department is not doing nearly as efficient work as 
could easily be done, because there is not enough room to arrange for suffi- 
ciently long periods of v/ork. The Lecturer in charge has complained 
several times, and is anxious to develop this work for the men but cannot 
on account of lack of necessary accommodation. 

Demonstration Lessons. 

This work is at present carried on in at least four centres : Alexandra 
Road Bo}^s' Department ; Alexandra Road Girls' Department ; The 
National School and the Agricultural Buildings. We need to provide ac- 
commodation for six groups, each of which includes a class of children and 
at least 15 to 20 students. The Head Teachers of the Schools are very 
willing to assist us, but at Alexandra Road, for example, there are four 
groups each Monday afternoon and this is putting too much strain on the 
organisation of the school. 

In the case of the Agricultural Buildings, again, the Staff of that 
Department have assisted us cheerfully in very trying conditions, but 
both their work and our own are interfered with under the present condi- 
tions. 

Summary of Main Desiderata. 

1. Revision of accommodation for Handwork, Demonstration 
lessons, Library, Exhibition purposes. 

2. Central Office for housing routine work of administration. 

3. Better accommodation for Staff, Tutorial, and lecture work. 

4 . Clerk for routine office work, charge of library, and demon- 
stration apparatus. At present the Department has the 
part-time services for routine work of a very efficient, and 
capable clerk in the General Office. Boy or girl assistant for 
Women's Handwork and Needlework, and similar activities.

ART AND CRAFTS. 
Mr. Dan R. Jones. 

The number of students who pursued courses in Art and Crafts during 
Session 1926-27 was 109, their allocation being as follows : — 

From the Training Department ... ... 98 

Art and Crafts — Full Time ... ... ... 10 

Art and Crafts — Part Time ... ... ... 1 

In addition to the number of students from the Training Department 
who satisfied the Board of Education, we record the following successes : — , 

Diploma in Art : 
Miss C. M. Thomas. 

Diploma in Craft : 

Miss Eirlys Morgan. 
Miss Glenys Edwards. 
Mr. Leslie Wat kins. 

Art Teachers' Certificate [Society of Art Masters) : 

Percival L. Thomas — 2nd Class Certificate with 1st 

Class in one subject. 
Ouida E. Davies — 1st Class Certificate with 1st Class 

in two subjects and Honours in two subjects. 
Hettie V. Hall — 2nd Class Certificate with 1st Class 

in three subjects. 
James Dixon — 2nd Class Certificate with 1st Class 

in two subjects. 
Elvet Lewis — 2nd Class Certificate with 1st Class in 

two subjects. 
C. M. Thomas — 2nd Class Certificate with 1st Class 

in four subjects and Honours in one. 

One student was granted a travelling scholarship to enable her to visit 
and study in Paris. Miss C. M. Thomas has illustrated a Welsh book for 
Mr. David Evans which has been published. Miss Gwen Davies has nearly 
completed the illustrations for a book by Sir Oliver Lodge. 

The additional non-recurrent grant of £50 from the College has enabled 
us to buy casts, including one full size figure, also books and other equip- 
ment, which were urgently needed. Further development of the work could 
readily be carried out were the necessary funds available. 

The Gallery of Craft with its excellent and growing collection of modern 
craft has been most instructive and inspiring, its good influence is noticeable 
in the marked improvement of late years in the. work produced by the 
students. In this connection, I desire to place on record with gratitude 
the very valuable services of Mr. Greenslade which he continues to give so 
freely to the Gallery. We acknowledge gratefully a gift of drawings and 
engravings from Mr. Eleanor.

Music Diploma Course (Arts). 

II (a) In the second year on the academic side of the Music Diploma 
course one student this year took three Intermediate courses and passed in 
the three subjects. Another student succeeded in passing the Subsidiary 
Examination in English. All the students succeeded in History, and one 
only failed to pass the special examination in Elementary Education. The 
first year students who entered this year had a very elementary knowledge 
of English and History. One was considerably superior to the others in 
English and she did very well in the final examination. The others who had 
worked very steadily made very satisfactory progress, but at the end of 
the session had not reached a stage at which they could be recommended to 
pursue the Intermediate Course next session and they are required to attend 
regularly for tutorial guidance in the Intermediate work in addition to 
attendance at the College lectures. No student took Welsh this year ; one 
first year student pursued Intermediate French but was unsuccessful at the 
examination. 

II (b) . The Counterpoint papers submitted by students in the Auxiliary- 
Courses were weak. The Harmony papers were slightly better, two second- 
year and one first-year candidate showing much promise. 

III. Instrumental and Vocal Work (Lessons and Ensemble). Twelve 
students have studied the violin ; three the 'cello ; twelve the pianoforte ; 
one the organ, and five singing. Two ensemble classes, under Mr. Arthur 
Williams' direction, have been held weekly throughout each term, together 
with a number of extra periods as occasion required. 

IV. Students of Training Department. — Thirtjr-seven 4th year and 
thirty- three 1st year normal students took music. 

The 4th year students for their Certificate Examination work a paper 
on the Elements of Music and are also classified as to their practical 
skill in sight-reading (both in tune and time) together with an ear test. 
The results this year have been most satisfactory. Students in the 
Training Department do not seem to take full advantage of the reduced fee 
concession allowed to those who wish to pursue courses of study in voice- 
training and instrumental playing in the Music Department. 

V. General Activities. 

(a) Orchestral ; (b) Choral ; (c) College Weekly Concerts and Friday 
" At Homes " ; (d) Open Lectures, 

(a) The orchestra continues to be well supplied with string players, 
but the wind section — wood and brass — remains much the same as in past 
years. We have, however, a promising bassoon player in one of the Degree 
students, Mr. Harry Steel. If other students could be induced to take 
up the study of a wood-wind instrument so as to fill up the gaps in this 
section, the orchestral performances would gain considerably in sonority. 
The Wednesday Orchestral practices are well attended and the prepara- 
tory, work done in the Tuesday orchestral part practices makes it possible 
to cover a considerable amount of ground during each term. The enthusias- 
tic assistance rendered by Dr. A. B. Thomas in attending to the many details 
connected with the Orchestra has been most helpful. 

(b) The Choral Society at the end of the first term gave performances of 
" Hiawatha' s Wedding Feast " (Coleridge-Taylor) and Bach's " Christmas 
Oratorio " (Parts I. and II.). The second and third terms were taken up 
mainly in the preparation of Beethoven's Mass in D and Beethoven's Choral 
Symphony (No. 9) for Festival purposes. These exacting works made con- 
siderable demands upon the chorahsts and loyally did they respond in spite 
of the numerous extra practices that were necessary to fully master the 



7 o 



works. Occupied as the singers were with these strenuous preparations the 
Choral Society nevertheless found it possible to give a performance of the 
" Death of Minnehaha " (Coleridge-Taylor) at the end of the second term. 

It is to be hoped that the success which attended the performances of the 
Mass and the Choral Symphony in the recent Festival will lead to an in- 
creased membership during the coming Session. 

(c) College Weekly Concerts, etc. 

The pre-arranged sequence of concerts — orchestral, chamber, mis- 
cellaneous, choral — has been maintained with comparatively few interrup- 
tions, the Inter-Coll. Week, the visit of a guest vocalist, and the Montgomery- 
shire Festival, for example, necessitating slight alterations in the order 
of events. 

In the Chamber Music Concerts, prominence was given to the Beethoven 
quartets, works which were closely studied by the students every Friday 
morning throughout the Session at the Students' Chamber-Music Hour, 
one of the most precious periods in the College music course. 

At the Orchestral Concerts we renewed acquaintance with works more 
or less familiar and made more extensive use of the facilities offered by the 
Carnegie Music Lending Library, among the new numbers performed 
during the Session being " Prince Igor " Overture (Borodin), Suite 
Arlesienne (Bizet), Suite for Strings (Frank Bridge) and Slav Dances 
(Dvorak). 

The miscellaneous and Choral Concerts gave a welcome variety to the 
series and met with considerable approval. 

(d) The Thursday Open Lectures included those on " Welsh Music " 
by Dr. Lloyd Williams, " Elementary principles of Sound " by Professor 
Gwilym Owen, Latin Pronunciation by Professor Rose, Beethoven by Sir 
\ Walford Da vies, and Musical structure (as exemplified in the Mass and 
Choral Symphony) by myself. 

It should be noted that the Lectures on " Welsh Music " form an 
integral part of the Music Course, and at the end of the Session B.A. Final 
students as well as T,T.C. Diploma candidates are required to answer ques- 
tions on the subject-matter of the Lectures given during the Session. 

Co-operation with other College Departments is a feature which needs 
developing and the ever-ready response of my colleagues even at short 
notice and at no slight personal inconvenience has been a heartening ex- 
perience during the Session. 

VI. Annual College Festival. This Festival was held on June 21st and 
23rd, the 22nd being wholly taken up by the Cardiganshire County Festival. 
The guest conductors on the 21st and 23rd respectively, were Mr. Edward 
German and Sir Henry Wood, whose presence at the Festival we owe to 
the^kind offices of Sir Walford Davies. To Sir Walford also we are indebted 
for^securing the services of Mr. W. H. Reed as guest leader of the orchestra. 

The works performed during the Festival were : — 

(a) Choral: Mass in D (Beethoven); St. Paul (Mendelssohn); 
and Choral Symphony (Beethoven). 

(b) Instrumental: " Coronation March and Hymn " ; "Hamlet"; 
" Welsh Rhapsody " — all conducted by the composer, Edward 
German ; First Movement of Italian Symphony (Mendelssohn) ; 
Egmont (Beethoven) ; Rigaudon (Rameau) ; Peer Gynt Suite 
(Greig) ; Cassation (No. 1) for Strings (Mozart) ; Violin Con- 
certo in D (Beethoven) ; Meistersinger Overture (Wagner) ; 
Choral Symphony (Beethoven) ; " Oberon " (Weber). 



7i 



Miss Evelyn Cooke's rendering of Beethoven's Violin Concerto was 
an outstanding feature of the afternoon programme on June 23rd. 

In December of the present Session, I was honoured by being appointed 
Professor of Music and Head of the Music Department at this College in 
succession to Sir Waif ord Davies, and now on the completion of the Session 
I wish to acknowledge with gratitude the loyal support given to me by the 
members of the Music Staff. 

The appointment of Mr. C. H. Clements, F.R.C.O., Mus. Bac, as 
Assistant Lecturer has enabled him to devote his whole attention to depart- 
mental work, and the valuable assistance given by him is much appreciated. 

The debt which the Department owes to Mr. Arthur Williams is one 
that cannot be justly estimated. Colleagues and students vie with one 
another in paying constant and well-deserved tribute to him both as an 
artist and as a teacher ; his colleagues, the tribute of deference, his students 
the tribute of efficiency and its attainment. 

Works published during the past Session : — 

1. " Cadwyn o geinciau gwerin " (Chain of folk songs) for S.S.C. 
(David de Lloyd). 

2 " Dydd a Nos " (Day and Night). Cantata for Children's voices. 
(David de Llo}^d.) 



LAW. 

Professor T. A. Levi. 
I. Successes of Students. 

We are pleased to report the following successes of our law students 
during the session 1926 — 1927. 

Mr. Llywelfryn Davies obtained a Commonwealth Fellowship of £400 a 
year, enabling him to visit the United States of America and pursue legal 
research in International Law. 

Mr. Seaborne Davies obtained the first place on the list in Division I. of 
Class I. in the Law Tripos at Cambridge, as well as the Strathcona Scholar- 
ship of /200 a year and. a Wright's Prize at St John's College, Cambridge. 
This is the fourth time since the end of the war that an Aberystwyth student 
has headed the Law Tripos at Cambridge University. 

Mr. R. Moelwyn Hughes was appointed Assistant- Tutor at the Law 
Society's School of Law. Mr. Hughes has also during the session published 
a new edition of Lord Birkenhead's Manual of International Law. 

Mr. Giyn Morgan, Barry, and Mr. Edward John Davies, Treherbert, have 
been appointed to Colonial barristerships on the recommendation of the 
Colonial Office. 

Mr. Vyrnwy John Lewis, Mr. J. B. Young Evans and Mr. H. G. Ham- 
mond have been called to the Bar, obtaining very high places at the Final 
Examination for the Bar. 

Mr. Humphrey Davies Roberts, Mr. John Hugh Jones and Mr. Geraint 
Lloyd Williams have passed the Final Examination of the Law Society 
for admission as solicitors. 



72 



II. Other Distinctions. 

Mr. D. Hughes Parry, a former student and lecturer at Aberystwyth, 
contributed a paper at the annual meeting of the Society of Public Teachers 
of Law on " The New Property Acts." 

Mr. T. Ellis Lewis, Lecturer in Law, contributed a paper to the Swansea 
and Neath Students' Law Society. 

Mr. Stanley Bailey, Ll.B., of St. John's College, Cambridge, and Mr. 
John Cherry, B.A., of Clare College, have been appointed to the new lecture- 
ships in Law at the College, and I wish to express my obligation to them as 
well as to Mr. T. Ellis Lewis for the invaluable service rendered by them. 
Their work met with immediate success, and the extra-mural work under- 
taken by the College in collaboration with the University College, Bangor, 
at Rhyl, exceeded all records both in attendance and enthusiasm. Mr. 
i Stanley Bailey did most of this work, and the credit is mainly due to him. 
He was, however, assisted on some occasions by Mr. Cherry. Mr. Bailey's 
report is annexed. It is a sufficient comment on it that the attendance 
throughout was more than doubled. 

III. Work of the Students. 

During the past session, the following students deserve special men- 
tion. Miss Iris de Freitas, Ll.B., wrote a treatise on " Civil Conspiracy " 
which was of sufficient merit to exempt her from an oral examination, and is 
likely to be published in one of the Law reviews. Mr. Harold Morgan 
Arthur was awarded the Samuel Evans Prize by the Academic Board at the 
commencement of the session. Mr. D. M. Phillips, Mr. Alun Jones and Mr. 
Arthur, post-graduate students, are now engaged on research work for 
the Ll.M. Degree of the University of Wales. Miss Dorothy Lloyd Owen 
is at Girton College, Cambridge. Among present students the work of 
Mr. Merlin Howell and Mr. Wadsworth among Final Students, and the 
work of Mr. Hugh Elvet Francis and Mr. Geraint Rees among First Year 
Law students deseives special mention. All these students are taking 
Honours in Law. 

IV. Number of Students 

The total number of students taking degree courses in Law was 25 
Of these four were in the Preliminary stage, 15 (including students taking. 
Constitutional Law) in the First Year of Law Studies, and six in the Final 
Stage. Of these four will be entering for Honours in Law in the session 
1927 — 1928. Mention should also be made of three students who are gradu- 
ates in Law and who have undertaken research work for the LL.M. Degree. 

In addition to these students there were, at the commencement of 
last session, the following articled clerks in the North Wales Law School at 
Rhyl — Intermediate students, 14 ; Final students, 7 — a total of 21, nearly 
double the number in the previous session. 

In the special classes for articled clerks specially formed at Aberyst- 
wyth, there were fewer students than usual, three in number, owing to the 
fact that many had previously completed the statutory requirement under 
the Solicitors' Act, 1922. More applications, however, have been received 
for 1927 — 1928, 

To complete the number of articled clerks for whom the College is- 
making provision there should be added the estimated number of intending 
articled clerks, nine in number, many of whom have been already allocated 
to solicitors' offices. Including three or four articled clerks who are 
doing research work for the Ll.M. Degree at Aberystwyth, the total number 
of articled clerks for whom Aberystwyth makes provision is twenty-eight, 
actually articled cleiks and nine intending articled clerks. 



73 

V. Progress of Legal Education. — 

During the present session, progress has been made with the formation 
of an Advisory Board in Law to take the place of the Joint Board of Legal 
Education, and to meet regularly in close touch with the University Court. 
An Advisory Board consisting of eleven members has been decided upon, 
five members to represent the University and five members to represent 
the legal profession with an independent chairman. At the same time the 
grants made to the College by the Law Society are to be administered 
by local Law Boards ; and a Board for the Aberystwyth area and for the 
North Wales area respectively has been formed under the new scheme. 

I add Mr. Bailey's Report of the work done in the North Wales Law 
School. 



NORTH WALES LAW SCHOOL. 

Mr. Stanley J. Bailey. 

I beg to submit the following report of the work of the fourth year of the 
North Wales Law School at Rhyl. 

Perhaps the most striking feature of the past session is the substantial 
increase in the number of students attending the lectures at Rhyl. The 
total for the past year is twenty-one — nearly double the figure of the preced- 
ing year. 

The attendance too, has been regular and averages approximately 
93% . Many of the students come from a considerable distance to attend the 
lectures, and the curtailment of the train services during the recent coal 
stoppage increased the difficulties of transport for us. In the face of this 
the attendances have been surprisingly good. 

The results of the Terminal Examinations have been satisfactory and 
averaged approximately 50%. 

The session opened early in October, and Professor Levi was present 
to address the students and introduce the new Lecturer. 

The Final Class was attended by eight students, most of whom were 
strangers to the new Law of Property when the session began. Lectures 
were delivered on this subject throughout the year, and on the Law of 
Contract, Sale of Goods, Negotiable Instruments and Agency. 

The Intermediate Class comprised thirteen students in all. One of these 
sat for the Intermediate Examination of the Law Society in March and was 
successful, while another is sitting for it in June. Lectures were delivered 
on Vols. II. and III. of Stephen's Commentaries, covering the elements 
of the Law of Property and of the Common Law. 

In all eighty-four lectures were held during the session, and I am 
indebted to Mr. John Cherry for delivering four of these. 

The School has been represented during the year on the Joint Committee 
for Legal Education in Wales and at the Conference of Representatives of 
Law Schools held at the Law Society's Hall, in January last.

PURE MATHEMATICS. 

Mr. V. C. Morton. 

The number of students taking courses in the Department this session 
was slightly less than the number last session, whilst the proportion of passes 
was approximately the same this year as last. The chief decrease was 
in the Subsidiary Class, compensated to some extent by an increase in the 
Second Year Honours Class. The work done was very satisfactory, especially 
that of the Honours students. The following students deserve special 
mention : — Intermediate, Mr. I. G. Jenkins ; Subsidiary, Messrs. J. G. 
Nicholas and E. M. Williams ; Final, Miss D. S. Meyler and Mr. I. G. 
Richards ; Second Year Honours, Miss D. Grindley. Six students, four of 
whom were girls, took second year Honours in Pure Mathematics alone, 
four with Differential Geometry and two with Theory of Functions as 
special subject. One, Miss D. Grindley, obtained First Class, two, Second 
Class, First Division, two, Second Class, Second Division, and one, Third 
Class. Five men sat the Combined Honours examination, two with Differen- 
tial Geometry as special subject. Four obtained Second Class, First Division, 
and one, Third Class. The work of this double group of Honours students 
was keen and their enthusiasm fully justified the time spent by the staff 
on framing and providing for the various alternative courses. 

Mr. O. G. Sutton is continuing his research on a problem in the Theory 
of Functions and Mr. Morton has two papers in preparation on algebraical 
and geometrical subjects. 

In July, 1926, the Department lost the services of Mr. D. R. Williams, 
M.A., who was elected to a University Fellowship, and is at present pursuing 
research work at Strasbourg. I should like to express my appreciation 
of his efficient and enthusiastic work for the Department during the two 
years he was here. To fill the vacancy Mr. O. G. Sutton, B.Sc, an old 
student of this College, was appointed assistant Lecturer. He has been 
very successful and has ably carried out his full share of the work, both 
in the early and advanced stages. Mr. B. A. Edwards, who holds a Univer- 
sity Fellowship and who is researching at Cambridge, in geometry, gave a 
short but stimulating course of lectures to the Honours Class on Descriptive 
Geometry. Mr. W. G. L. Sutton has proved himself invaluable to the 
Department. His experience in both the Departments of Pure and Applied 
Mathematics has contributed largely to the success of the Combined Honours 
course which offers a thorough and well-balanced training in Mathematics 
as a whole. 

In conclusion I wish to take this opportunity to express my apprecia- 
tion of the way the Department had been re-organised and put into smooth 
running order ready for this last session by Professor G. A. Schott during 
the years 1923-6 and to thank him for his generous co-operation and the 
help of his experience.

APPLIED MATHEMATICS. 

Professor G. A. Schott. 

The session just passed has not been as productive of good results 
as previous sessions. The total number of students (including two re- 
search students and ten in honours) was 41, somewhat less than last year. 
Of these 32 sat University examinations and 23 passed. The Second Year 
Honours Class was very even, and much satisfactory work was done, but 
there was no one outstanding. Next year promises to be better in this 
respect, as there were several students in the First Year Honours Class, 
who may develop well. In the Subsidiary Class also there were some 
promising students. 

Mr. W. R. Morgans obtained his M.Sc. degree with a thesis on Boundary 
Problems in Wave Propagation, in which he showed great capacity in the 
selection and critical exposition of a large mass of material hardly known 
in England and made an attempt, worthy, though unsuccessful as yet, 
at the solution of a very difficult problem on moving surfaces of discon- 
tinuity. Mr. Falkner also did good work in the collection and discussion 
of material for a thesis on the Quantum Theory of the Atom with special 
reference to the recent researches of de Broglie and Schrodinger. 

During the session the following papers were published : — 

" The Theory of the Linear Electric Oscillator and its bearing on 
the Electron Theory."— G. A. Schott, Phil. Mag., Vol. III., 
p. 739. 1927. 

" Wave Mechanics and Classical Mechanics and Electrodynamics." 
— G. A. Schott. Nature, Vol. 119, p. 820. 1927. 

Mr. Thomas Lewis, M.Sc, has given very valuable help during the 
session, both in the Honours and Pass Classes.

It must be acknowledged that on the whole the work of the students 
was disappointing as is shown by the high percentage of failures in the 
examinations. Some students find Physics a difficult subject and fail, 
at their first attempt, to attain the necessary standard in spite of diligent 
application to their studies. It is to be feared however, that a large propor- 
tion of the failures is due to students idling during the first two terms of 
the session. It is then too late to make up for lost time. It is a pleasure, 
however, to state that in all the Classes there are many students who take a 
real interest in their work and who make every effort to profit by the oppor- 
tunities within their reach. 

The work of the following students is worthy of special mention : — 

Honours : J. C. Llewellyn. 

Final : V. LI. Davies, H. O. Jenkins, D. Lewis, T. J. Rees. 

Subsidiary : E. G. James, J. R. E. Jones. 

Intermediate : I. G. Jenkins, E. M. Williams, Gwyn Williams. 

Mr. E. J. Gooding, B.Sc, who graduated with First Class Honours in 
Physics in 1926, has been awarded the John Francis Scholarship. 

Mr. R. M. Davies, B.Sc, has pursued his research work with great 
enthusiasm and has obtained some new and interesting results. His thesis 
entitled : — " The Application of the Piezo-Electric Properties of Rochelle 
Salt to determine the temperature variation of the Electricity of the Crystal" 
was highly commended by the external examiner and has gained for him the 
M.Sc. degree of the University of Wales. 

The vacancy on the staff caused by the resignation of Mr. W. Mandell, 
M.Sc, was filled by the appointment of Mr. Ifor C. Jones, M.Sc, an old 
student of this College wdio had spent two years at the Cavendish Labora- 
tory, Cambridge, carrying out research under the direction of Sir Ernest 
Rutherford. Mr. Jones is engaged in constructing his apparatus to enable 
hirn to continue his investigations on the passage of alpha-rays through 
gases. 



77 



The staff of the Department delivered numerous scientific lectures in 
towns and villages up and down the country, the majority of the lectures 
being delivered in Welsh. Mr. Tunstall and Mr. I. C. Jones contributed 
articles to the press in connection with the recent solar eclipse and articles 
of mine on " Datblygiad ym myd y Ser " (" Evolution in the star- world ") 
have appeared in the Efrydydd. 

The visit of Sir William Bragg, K.B.E., F.R.S., in October last and his 
lectures on X-rays were greatly enjoyed and appreciated by the students 
and all the members of the Department. 

Our technical assistant, Mr. L. E. Sulston, has during the session, in 
addition to his routine work, made valuable additions to our apparatus and 
equipment. Our mechanic, Mr. David Owen, and laboratory attendant. 
Miss Florrie Meredith, have carried out their duties to my entire satisfaction. 

In conclusion I wish to express to my colleagues my gratitude for their 
efficient and loyal co-operation in the work of the Department.

The resignation and departure of Dr. Albert Green, Assistant Lecturer 
in Organic Chemistry, at the end of the Easter Term is greatly regretted 
by staff and students of the Department. He has been a constant help 
not only in Departmental affairs but in other College activities also. He was 
an excellent teacher and the high standard of his research was recognised 
by the Board of Examiners who accepted his published papers for the 
Ph.D. degree. Dr. Green has become Research Chemist to the firm of 
Messrs. Kemball, Bishop and Co., Limited, Crown Chemical Works, London. 

Intermediate Course. — This Class tends to diminish in number since a 
large proportion of entrants into the Department have completed the Higher 
Certificate of the Central Welsh Board. This year's class was small and 
consisted chiefly of beginners. It was conducted by Mr. Hudleston, Mr. 
C. W. Davies assisting with the practical work. 



78 

Subsidiary Course. — The Physical Course was, as usual, conducted by 
Mr. C. R. Bury, while I dealt with the Organic side and Messrs. Hudleston 
and Davies the practical work. The standard attained in the sessional 
examinations was not as high as usual, but good work was done by Miss 
Mary A. Rees, Miss M. Bevan and Messrs. J. R. E. Jones, Emrys Davies 
and M. G. Evans. 

Final Course. — Courses in Organic Chemistry were taken by Dr. Green 
and myself, while I conducted a course in Inorganic Chemistry and Messrs. 
Hudleston, Davies and Bury special courses in Physical Chemistry. Dr. 
Green supervised the practical work and later Mr. Bury took charge. Very 
good work was done during the year by Miss A. G. Rees and by Messrs. 
D. G. Davies, V. L. Davies and H. O. Jenkins. 

Honours — The Honours Class consisted of eight students, four of 
whom took the Examination in Pure Chemistry, two in Chemistry with 
Agricultural Biochemistry, while two postponed their examination until 
next year. The class contained men of considerable ability and they 
worked well together as a team. All members of staff took part in their 
preparation and gave courses of lectures on special topics while Mr. David 
Evans assisted them in German reading. The examination results were 
satisfactory. In Pure Chemistry, Messrs. J. Grindley and D. I. Jen- 
kins obtained First Class Honours, Mr. J.I. Stephens Second Class, Division 
i. and Mr. D. C. E. Jenkins Second Class, Division 2. In Chemistry with 
Agricultural Biochemistry, Mr. A. J. Pugh was awarded First Class Honours 
and Mr. D. S. Davies, Second Class, Division 2. 

Higher Degrees.— Two former students of the Department, Mr. J. S. 
Lewis, Lecturer at the Royal Naval College, Greenwich, and Mr. A. G. 
White, of the Research Staff of Messrs Nobels, Ltd., took the M.Sc. degree. 
Mr. E. R. Jones, who has worked as a research student during the last 
three years under the direction of Mr. C. R. Bury, completed his scheme 
of work and was awarded the Ph.D. degree. As mentioned above, Mr. 
Albert Green also completed the Ph.D. degree. 

Higher Degrees of Other Universities. — -Mr. Thomas Hopkins has been 
awarded the Ph.D. degree of the University of London for a research on 
'Triphenylethylene dyes." 

Mr. G. H. Lewis has held a research Fellowship at the University of 
Idaho, U.S.A., and has now obtained the M.Sc. of that University with a 
thesis entitled " Studies in Hindered Settling." 

Research. — The following students were carrying out research work in 
the Department during the session : — • 

Under my direction : Mr. D. W. Stephens, B.Sc. {2nd year ol 
Ph.D. course) ; Mr. N. W. Hanson (1st year of Ph.D. course) ; 
Mr. Reginald Jones (M.Sc. course). Under Mr. Bury : Mr. 
E. R. Jones (2nd year of Ph.D. course) ; Mr. W. C Walmsley 
(1st year of Ph.D. course) ; Mr. F. E. Jones (1st year of Ph.D. 
course). Under Mr. Hudleston : Mr. D. B. Jehu, M.Sc. 
(1st year of Ph.D. course). All worked assiduously and made 
satisfactory progress. 

The papers published during the year are as follows : —

Elementary Course — Fight students preparing for the Diploma in 
Agriculture attended lectures and demonstrations throughout the Michael- 
mas Term. The work of this class was fairly good, the most promising 
members being Messrs E. G. M. Richards, S. F. Barnes and L. F. Gregory. 

Intermediate Course. — This class worked well throughout the year and 
made good progress. The following students are worthy of special men- 
tion : — Misses G. Dwyer, G. I. Llewelyn, D. R. Voss, E. M. Cule, M. Thomas, 
Messrs. A. R. Sansbury, J. E. Morgan, W. C. Hall and W. Davies. 

Subsidiary Course. — This was a good class of eight students. Excellent 
work was done at this stage by Misses M. Dewhirst and L. M. Goodfellow. 

Final Course. — This class contained two students ; both made good 
progress. Miss C. M. Griff iths's work reached a high standard and she 
presented an excellent set of scripts in the University Degree Examinations. 

Mr. R. M. Jehu's paper on the Towyn — Abergynolwyn country was 
published during the session. In March, 1926, he was appointed Assistant 
Lecturer in the Department of Geography and Geology in the University of 
Natal, Pietermaritzburg, and last session, he was in charge of the Depart- 
ment in the absence of the Head on long leave in England. 

Mr. K. A. Davies, M.Sc, who graduated with First Class Honours 
in 1923, has had his University Fellowship extended for a third year. Last 
session, he continued his researches as a student in the University of Cam- 
bridge, and he is a prospective candidate for the Cambridge Ph.D. degree 
at the end of next session. He has actively continued the researches wh.ch 
he commenced under my supervision, and has also work in hand on the 
Ashgillian-Valentian faunas. His paper on the country around Abergwesyn 
was published in October, 1926, and he has a further paper in the press on 
the country between Rhayader and Abergwesyn. 

Mr. D. E. Thomas, who graduated with Honours in Geology and 
Geography, has been appointed Assistant Field Geologist on the Geological 
Survey of Victoria, Australia, and he commenced duties in April of this 
year. 



8i 



Mr. K. E. Williams, who graduated with First Class Honours in 1925, 
has continued his researches in this Department, and for last session he was 
awarded a research grant by the Department of Scientific and Industrial 
Research. He has completed and published a paper on the glacial drifts of 
Western Cardiganshire, and he has important work in progress on the country 
around Pontrhydygroes (Cardiganshire). He was awarded the M.Sc. degree 
last month, and his work was highly commended by the examiners. With 
the assistance of a grant from the Travelling Scholarship Fund, he proposes 
to visit Sweden this summer, for the purpose of examining certain typical 
sections in the Lower Palaeozoic rocks of that country. 

Mr. R. O. Roberts, who graduated with First Class Honours in 1926, 
and who holds a University Studentship, has pursued a scheme of research 
in the Department this session. He has published a paper on the igneous 
rocks of Baxter's Bank, near Rhayader, and he is now engaged in an investi- 
gation of the country around Abbeycwmhir (Radnorshire). 

Mr. J. Challinor and Mr. K. E. Williams have published a paper on 
some previously unrecorded markings on a rock surface near Borth. Similar 
markings have recently been discovered by a Russian geologist working in 
Transbaikalia. It is hoped to publish a comparative description with 
some account of their mode of formation. Mr. Challinor has also published 
additional information concerning the age of the rocks around Cardigan. 

Mr. Piatt has continued his work on the most recent views of Continental 
geologists on the structure of the Alps. This is now nearing completion, 
and it is hoped that some means will be found of publishing the manuscript. 

The Head of the Department has submitted to the Geological Society 
of London, a paper on the country around Dinas Mawddwy, and has further 
papers in preparation on the district between Dinas Mawddwy and Bala, 
and on certain postglacial deposits near Welshpool. 

The following papers have been published during the session : — 

1. R. M. Jehu. The Geology of the District around Towyn and 
Abergynolwyn (Merioneth). Quart. Journ. Geol. Soc, Vol. 
LXXXIL, pp. 465—89.

We were again favoured with a visit from Dr. F. J. North, Keeper of 
Geology in the National Museum of Wales, who gave a lecture to students of 
the Department and others on the " Early Literature of Mines, Minerals 
and Metals." 

I have to report considerable additions to the Departmental Museum 
and Library. By means of a special grant from the College Council it 
has been possible to purchase certain exhibition cases and cabinets, which 
were greatly needed, and which will make a large amount of valuable 
material more readily accessible to students. We are indebted to Mr. 
J. F. Jackson for an important collection of over 300 specimens from the 
Isle of Wight, illustrating the various rock groups which are developed 
in the island ; to the National Museum of Wales (per Dr. North), for gifts 
of coal measure plants, specimens of iron ore and limestone concretions. 
By a system of exchange we have received specimens from the University 
of Liverpool (per Professor Boswell), and the University of Bristol (per 
Professor Reynolds), which will be particularly useful for teaching pur- 
poses. The collections have also been added to by the personal 
collecting of staff and students. 

In previous reports I have drawn attention to the need for additional 
accommodation. This is still urgent and the work of the Department is 
considerably restricted on this account. There are certain aspects of Geo- 
logy, which cannot be adequately taught and in which investigations cannot 
be encouraged, owing, not only to lack of apparatus, but also to lack of 
space in which to accommodate the apparatus if it were in our possession. 

The Department is again indebted to J. B. Willans, Esq., Dolforgan, 
for gifts of various kinds and a contribution of £10 towards the funds of the 
Department. We greatly appreciate his interest in this Department and 
his generosity throughout past years. 

During the long vacation Mr. Piatt and Miss Harris (Department of 
Geography) are conducting a Summer School in Structural and Physical 
Geography, more especially for teachers of Geography. • They have already 
enrolled thirty students, drawn mainly from Secondary School teachers 
in England and Wales. 

Field excursions were organised at frequent intervals throughout the 
session to places of geological interest, and they were well attended by 
students at all grades. , 

We have been fortunate this session in having Mr. Sansbury's services 
as Laboratory Assistant. He has done excellent work in the Department 
and I am particularly pleased to see his keen interest in the subject. He 
attended the Intermediate Course and was one of the best students in the 
class. 

As in previous years, Mr. Challinor and Mr. Piatt have discharged their 
duties in an extremely efficient manner, and my thanks are due to them 
for their loyal co-operation in all matters pertaining to the welfare of the 
Department.

Agricultural Diploma Course. — Mr. J. R. W. Jenkins and Mr. Aneurin 
Lewis have conducted this class jointly, Mr. Jenkins taking the Entomology 
and Mr. Lewis the rest of the course. 

Diploma hi Animal and Human Biology. — The Diploma was instituted 
by the College at the close of last session and is open to students who have 
pursued the two years course, with Biology as a subject, in a Training College, 
and to others of suitable general education. The course may be taken as a 
' refresher ' course and is appropriate especially for teachers of Botany who 
wish to extend their work to cover Biology or Zoology. Two candidates 
have pursued the course this session, Miss Vera Fretter of Furzedown Train- 
ing College, and Miss Marj orie Maw of Whitelands Training College. Both 
were very satisfactory students, Miss Fretter particularly so. 

Intermediate Course. — The lectures were given by myself and the practi- 
cal instruction by Mr. Watkin. Miss B. Gregory deserves special mention; 
Mr. T. B. Jones, Mr. E. L. Jones and Miss E. M. Thomas also deserve men- 
tion, while Mr. D. S. Edwards, a mature matriculant, also did some good 
work. 

Subsidiary Course {1st Year Final). — The lectures were given by myself 
and the practical instruction by Mr. Aneurin Lewis. 

Final Course {2nd Year Final). — Mr, Watkin gave the lectures on 
Entomology and the other lectures were given by myself. Mr. Watkin took 
the practical work. Miss M. Metcalfe deserves special mention ; Miss Katie 
Lake also deserves mention. 



34 



Honours Course. — In addition to supervision by Mr. Watkin, Mr. Lewis 
and myself, the Entomological portion of the work was arranged by Mr. J. 
R. W. Jenkins, and a scheme in fresh water Ecology by Dr. Kathleen Car- 
penter. Miss Marjorie Picton pursued the Honours Course ; she was placed 
in the Second Division of the Second Class in her examination. 

Mr. E. E. Watkin has been awarded the degree of Ph.D. for his work 
on the Herring shoals of Cardigan Bay. 

Mr. Aneurin Lewis has continued his work as Field Officer in Hel- 
minthology for the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries Institute of Paras- 
itology. He has carried further his investigations of Helminthic Parasites 
of Domestic Animals. 

Mr. J. R. W. Jenkins has, in addition to the advisory work attaching 
to his post in the Department of Agriculture, given special attention to the 
study of the clover pests of the district. 

Miss K. E. Carpenter, Ph.D., has continued her investigations on 
pollution of local rivers and the ecology of Cardiganshire Streams under a 
continuation of her grant from the Department of Scientific and Industrial 
Research. 

Mr. E. E. Edwards, M.Sc, completed his research upon (a) the anatomy 
of an undescribed bird trematode parasite, and (b) the soil fauna of selected 
areas of the College Farm, during the Autumn term, and then migrated to 
the Rothamsted Experimental Station. He has now been appointed 
Advisor in Agricultural Zoology at Kirton, Lincolnshire. 

Miss Louise Beanland, M.Sc, has, under a grant from the Department 
of Scientific and Industrial Research, continued her investigation of prob- 
lems concerning seashore ' Animal Communities ' and has been turning her 
attention to a quantitative study of the protozoa of the soil between tide 
marks. She has spent a part of the session at Rothamsted Experimental 
Station, and the British Association allotted her the use of their Table at the 
Laboratory of the Marine Biological Association at Plymouth for the Easter 
vacation. 

Miss Blodwen Fox, M.Sc, has been awarded a University Fellowship.

The following additional books by Dr. J. Travis Jenkins should be put 
on record as published during the period in which he has been Hon. Lecturer 
in Oceanography in the Department : — 

" The Sea Fisheries." Constable. London. 1920. 
" A History- of the Whale Fisheries." Witherby, London. 1921. 
" A Textbook of Oceanography." Constable. London. 1921. 
" The Fishes of the British Isles." Warne. London. 1925 

Owing to inadequacy of funds available for Fisheries investigations 
it has been necessary to sell the Motor-boat Draig-y-mor ; my best thanks 
are due to Dr. Travis Jenkins for helping to meet our difficulty by allowing 
us to make use of the Lancashire and Western Sea Fisheries boat Alpha for 
purposes of research. During the session Dr. Jenkins also visited the 
College to deliver a lecture on " The Herring and the Herring Fisheries." 

The Honourable Samuel Vestey has, in addition to helping the Depart- 
ment in other ways, given a special donation to aid in the publication of the 
Report on Marine and Fresh Water Investigations. During the session sub- 
stantial additions have been made to the Library by the receipt of foreign 
publications in exchange for the Report. Also considerable additions have 
been made to the Entomological and Helminthological collections in the 
Museum. 

Mr. Watkin and Mr. Aneurin Lewis have again discharged their duties 
with much efficiency ; in addition to their teaching and research they have 
done very useful work in overhauling the Museum collections. Mr. J. R. W. 
Jenkins has, in the time which he is permitted to give to the Department, 
proved a most helpful colleague. 

Once again I have to conclude by asking attention to two urgent needs 
of the Department : 

1 . To proceed with the New Buildings for which plans were drawn up 
eight years ago, in order to overcome the difficulties involved by 
the distribution of our activities between two buildings consider- 
ably removed from each other ; and 

2. To restore to the Department the full-time Assistant Lectureship 
which was replaced by half-time assistance as an economy measure 
before the increase of the Government Grant to the College.

Almost without exception the students worked diligently and with 
satisfactory results. Particular mention must be made of the Honours 
Class in which the thesis work of Misses Gough, Ellis and Harries was highly 
commendable and showed promise of leading to definite contributions to 
knowledge if pursued further. 

During the session it has been possible, on two occasions, with the co- 
operation of the Department of Agricultural Botany and the Plant Breeding 
Station, to have special lectures in the Department. 

Professor Stapledon gave a course of four lectures on the botanical 
and agricultural aspects of his visit to Australia and New Zealand. Professor 
Otis Curtis (Professor of Plant Physiology, Cornell University, Ithaca, 
New York, U.S.A.) visited the above-mentioned Departments and lectured 
in this Department on his important work on translocation in plants. His 
lecture was much enjoyed and both staff and students appreciated the 
opportunity of meeting a distinguished botanist from abroad. 

There have been no research students during the session, but I am glad 
that it has been possible for Dr. J. Lloyd Williams to continue his investiga- 
tions on the Phaeophyceae in the Department : 

Dr. S. G. Jones is continuing and extending his researches on various 
microscopic fungi, and Mr. P. W. Carter has started some experimental 
work on certain seaweeds while at the same time pursuing further his re- 
searches on Padina pavonia. For the purpose of the latter work Mr. Carter 
is visiting the Marine Biological Station at Naples this Summer in order to 
obtain more material and to investigate the alga in its natural habitat. 

I am continuing my physiological studies of growth, development and 
reproduction in the Fungi and I am also initiating experiments extending 
these studies to the Marine Algae and to the Byophyta. 



88 



At the invitation of the Royal Society of Medicine, I recently read a 
paper on the Crown gall disease of plants in its bearings on recent work on 
cancer. 

At the end of the session two members of the Honours Class and one 
member of the Staff were awarded travelling scholarships for purposes of 
botanical study in Switzerland and Italy respectively. I am extremely 
gratified at these awards as the first-hand knowledge of foreign floras 
must be regarded of great value to students of botany. 

The Department is deeply indebted to J. B. Willans, Esq., Dolf organ, 
Montgomeryshire, for gifts of books to the Library, for specimens of plant 
diseases and for assistance to one of its members for travel abroad. 

I have to thank the College Authorities for kindly carrying out certain 
small structural alterations which have facilitated the work of the Depart- 
ment. 

In the teaching and research in the Department it is hoped to develop 
especially modern physiological aspects of Botany while at the same time 
providing a sound foundation of morphological knowledge on which such 
work can alone be built. The development of this experimental and 
physiological side of the subject is, however, handicapped by the lack of 
a Laboratory specially equipped for Plant Physiology. Another most 
desirable adjunct to modern botanical teaching is a small botanical garden 
in charge of a skilled gardener. Such a garden would provide not only 
material for class work but greenhouses and plots for experimental work on 
growing plants. In any future developments of the College I should be 
grateful if provision could be made for these necessities of up-to-date 
botanical teaching and research. 

In concluding this report I wish to acknowledge the loyal co-operation 
of Dr. S. G. Jones and Mr. P. W. Carter in all the work of the Department.

The session has been a very busy one in the Department of Geography 
and Anthropology as there was a good deal of post-graduate work in pro- 
gress and the Honours Class was of exceptional size and quality. Probably 
because the Department is the only one in its subject in the University a 
certain number of specially prepared students come to it, and now they are 
coming to it from schools in England as well. The Classes in the earlier 
stage maintained their numbers and, in the Subsidiary Class, Mr. J. E. 
Morgan, in the Final Class, Miss Dewhirst, and Messrs. Trevor Thomas 
and J. G. Davies did very good work. A number of others are promising 
and it seems likely that the honours classes for the next few years will 
include about 12 students per annum. It would be of great value if some 
friend of the College could secure help for us by the creation of a post for a 
young graduate to help the students in bibliographical and library matters ; 
a grant of £80 per annum for this purpose would greatly increase the effic- 
iency of the Department and the amount of work it could publish. Much 
material for publication is accumulating. 

Interesting appointments secured by old students include that of Lec- 
turer in the School of Anthropology of the University of Cambridge, to 
which Mr. R. U. Sayce, M.A., has been elected, and that of Assistant Curator 
in Archaeology at the National Museum of Wales, to which Mr. I. C. Peate, 
M.A., has been elected. 

Mr. E. G. Bowen, M.A., was elected last year as Cecil Prosser Research 
Student of the Medical School at Cardiff, with a grant of ^250. The autho- 
rities concerned decided that Mr. Bowen should hold the Research Student- 
ship at Aberystwyth and that he should work with Professor Lyle Cummins 
and myself. A report on this work is nearly ready. 

Miss R. M. Fleming was invited at the end of 1926 to withdraw from her 
position in the Geographical Association and to accept a grant of ^350 per 
annum for 3 — 4 years from the Medical Research Council for the continuance 
of her observations on growth of children. The authorities concerned 
decided that she should hold this grant at Aberystwyth and that she should 
work with Sir Arthur Keith and myself. Her work is of considerable social 
importance as well as of scientific value and is of a pioneer character.

These two practical developments of the racial studies that have been 
in progress for the last twenty years are welcome indications of the value 
of those studies and make it all the more desirable that the racial survey of 
the Welsh people, out of which they have grown, should get help to ensure 
its progress. I thank the Board of Celtic Studies of the University for its 
willingness to publish data of the survey in successive numbers of the Bulle- 
tin of Celtic Studies. 

Miss Fleming and I have designed during the last year, a new instru- 
ment for anthropological measurements and we believe that it is not only a 
great improvement on the old design (made in this Department) but that it 
does several things which no instrument has, as yet, been designed to do. 
This instrument was shown to Section H. British Association, at Leeds 
(1927) and was the basis of a discussion of principles of anthropological 
measurement with a view to the preparation of a new edition of the official 
book of instructions on the matter. Miss S. Harris gave a paper to Section 
E. (Geography) discussing land tenure and village systems in the Channel 
Islands, demonstrating the evolution of enclosed farms from a special local 
variety of the open-field system and showing how this evolution had 
affected the distribution of habitations. Mr. E. G. Bowen, M.A., gave a 
map of results of anthropological data collected by Dr. Bryn in Norway 
bringing out interesting correlations with facts noted in Wales. Mr. J. E. 
Daniel, B.Sc, read a paper on the distribution of adherence to the various 
religious bodies in Wales, giving correlations with historical, economic and 
anthropological data. Mr. Arthur Davies, B.A., read a paper continuing 
certain observations by Prof. Arthur Thomson of Oxford, and Mr. Dudley 
Buxton on the Nasal Index in Human Races and making suggestions as to 
its relation with environmental factors, especially climate. 

Mr. Bowen's work on Racial and Social Aspects of Tuberculosis was the 
subject of a lecture by him at the Royal Anthropological Institute recently 
and the lecture was discussed by a number of leading medical men with 
great appreciation. 

I was asked to give the first lecture in memory of Sir Malcolm Morris, 
M.D., at the Hall of the Royal Society of Medicine, under the Chadwick 
Trust and, in appreciation of Sir Malcolm's work, the subject of the lecture 
was " The Skin in relation to Race and Health." This lecture has since 
been published by the Oxford University Press. 

The published work for the session includes the above lecture and also 
the first tw r o volumes of " The Corridors of Time " (Clarendon Press) in 
which I collaborated with Mr. H. j. E. Peake, President of the Royal 
Anthropological Institute. The series is to include eight volumes and is an 
attempt to treat synthetically the main facts of the story of man up to 
the beginnings of written history. Mr. Whitehouse and I are contributing 
a series of articles, by invitation, to the Enciclopedia Italiana. I have 
been asked to become geographical editor for the complete new edition of 
the Encyclopaedia Brittanica and have been authorised to appoint two 
of the graduate workers in the Department as assistants in this work. 

Other published work includes : — 

Miss S. Harris. " The Village Community of Alderney." Sociological 
Review, XVIII., 1926. This paper was made the basis of a lecture in 
Guernsey by Miss Harris and the matter is to be extended for publication 
by her in the Transactions of the Societe Guernesiaise.

Mr. Peate has also published a number of notes on archaeological finds. 
A quantity of other material is either in proof or in an advanced state of 
preparation. Miss Harris in particular is setting together a number of 
researches bearing upon a discussion which is arranged to take place at the 
International Geographical Congress at Cambridge, in 1928. A Com- 
mittee of the Congress with Professor Demangeon, of Paris, as Chairman, 
and myself as Hon. Secretary is dealing with the subject of the Village 
and other forms of Rural Agglomeration for that Congress and Miss Harris 
is contributing important material for this as well as material for the better 
understanding of early Britam. 

The gifts to the Department during the session include most valued 
help towards student travel and towards departmental equipment from 
Mr. J. B. Willans ; a valuable collection of books and papers from Dr. 
Lleufer Thomas ; a cast of the bust of a Pygmy chief from the artist, Sir 
W. Goscombe John, R.A.; a set of the Transactions of the Historical Society 
of West Wales, from Sir J. Lynn Thomas ; books, pictures and especially 
two valuable water colour sketches of Totem poles from Wrangel Island, 
from the artist, Miss F. M. Barrow ; musical instruments from Java, once 
belonging to Dr. E. P. Hughes and presented by her nephew, Mr. J. B. 
Price Hughes ; pottery from Ur of the Chaldees, presented by Mr. J. M. 
Howell, per Mr. Peate ; a set of maps of Mongolia, presented by the American 
Museum of Natural History ; a stone implement given by a member of the 
Dinas Mawddwy Extra-Mural Class, per Mr. Peate, and a flint implement 
from Graig Gwrtheyrn Camp ; a stone axe in its haft, presented by Dr. 
Rowlands, Aberystwyth, who had obtained it from the mate of the " Ellen 
Gowan " Missionary steamer, which had returned from New Guinea ; pic- 
tures and books from Mrs. Guthkelch, Mr. E. E. Lewis, Mr. W. J. Varley, 
and various members of the Department, and a valuable local map from 
Mr. W. Bowen, of Port Talbot and Aberavon. 

The Department is still the Central Office of the Geographical Associa- 
tion which is very active though it cannot but feel severely the loss of Miss 
Fleming's whole-time services ; she continues to help a great deal informally 
and acts as Assistant Honorary Secretary, thus giving me much support in a 
heavy task which, however, is so valuable for the students of the Depart- 
ment in many ways that I feel bound to continue it as long as possible. The 
title of the Magazine has been altered to " Geography," and a series of supple- 
ments has been started in the hope of finding means of publishing some 
of the best of the post-graduate work of students in the schools of geo- 
graphy of British Universities. The library of the Association now includes 
some 2,500 books and is a great source of help to the advanced students who- 



92 



-are, usually, members of the Association ; the library is beginning to in- 
corporate new books published in Paris and Berlin and we have reason to 
hope that our international links are developing in several directions. The 
President of the Geographical Association, Sir Charles F. Close, honoured 
us with a visit and lectured on Recent Researches into the History of the 
Earth's Surface. Major Costard, of the White Star Line, gave an illus- 
trated lecture describing schemes made by the Company for facilitating 
travel by teachers and students. Dr. Eileen Power and Mr. Harold J. E. 
Peake gave valued assistance to research students during visits to Aberyst- 
wyth. Such visits are of special value in view of our somewhat remote 
position and it would enhance the efficiency of the Department if more 
could be done in this way. 

Some special funds, to the extent of about ^200, were made available 
for equipment and with this help it has been possible to lift some of the 
work permanently on to a higher level. I must repeat previous state- 
ments to the effect that the Department really needs four or five times this 
sum to make it ready for its opportunities. 

The Cardiganshire Antiquarian Society is working in close connection 
-with the College and the members visited the Museum of the Department 
recently. The Society has generously helped some excavations undertaken 
by graduates ; interesting results were obtained at Llanddewi Brefi and 
it was hoped that the conclusions reached would be extended by work at 
Llanfair Clydogau; but, unfortunately, results here were nil. Work in hand 
at Penglogau, in which Mr. S. J. Jones, B.A., is taking a leading part, is 
very promising. Mr. Jones's work on the distribution of stone axe-hammers 
of various types is developing well and in this connection, as in so many 
others, the fund for student foreign travel given by the Misses Davies of 
Gregynog, is proving invaluable for general education at the same time as for 
assistance of special enquiries. 

Some interesting maps relating to agriculture in Spain have been 
compiled by Miss F. F. Laidler and are approaching the stage of publica- 
tion, and a large number of Magister Theses is occupying the attention 
and a good deal of the time of the staff. In connection with Miss Laidler's 
work we wish to thank the officers of the Royal Geographical Society and 
Mr. R. Aitken, M.A. Messrs. I. T. Hughes, C. H. Davies, Trevor Lewis 
and D. Trevor Williams have gained the Magister Degree. 

The co-operation of colleagues in other Departments, and especially 
in that of Geology, is warmly acknowledged. Mr. J. I. Piatt of that Depart- 
ment, and Miss S. Harris, are conducting a summer school in the Geography 
House. Miss Fleming is helping the Summer School of the Froebel Society 
and I am helping that of the International High School at Elsinore, Den- 
mark. 

The invaluable help of the National Library of Wales and the unsparing 
efforts of the staff of the College Library are mentioned with special grati- 
tude, and I wish to add my personal thanks to Mr. Whitehouse, Miss S. 
Harris and Miss R. M. Fleming, as well as to Mr. E. G. Bowen, Mr. S. J. 
Jones and the clerical staff of the Geographical Association.

Report by Miss A. Cuming, Librarian. 
Statistics : 

Books dealt with during year : Books already in Library ... 2596 
Books dealt with during year : Accessions .. . ... ... 2275 

Total ... ... 4871 

Books issued to readers (General Library only), from Oct. 

1st, 1926, to June 30th, 1927 ... ... ... ... 7778 

The most important matter to report is the large and valuable bequest 
of books from the library of the late Principal. These have been sorted and 
selected and the College will benefit to the extent of about 15,000 volumes. 
Books of Welsh interest predominate, but the collection is also rich in other 
departments. The question of space in the General Library, which was 
already very urgent, has now to be decided before these books can be trans- 
ferred from the National Library. 

A scheme for the classifying, cataloguing and boxing of pamphlets was 
drawn up during the year and much work done on it. The item " Books 
already in Library, 2596 " in the Statistics is chiefly accounted for in this 
way. 

Several lists of " Books suggested for Purchase " were drawn up for the 
Library Committee. 

A number of books have been transferred to the National Library, some 
permanently and some on loan. 

The Science Library was counted during the Easter vacation, and the 
General Library during the long vacation. The number of missing books 
is still much too large, especially in Economics. 

In August, 1926, the College Library was visited and inspected by 
students of the Library Summer School. 

I published the following articles during 1926-7 : — 

Sketch of a classification for Law on the lines of the Library of 
Congress. (Library Association Record, 1926). 

The organization of a University Library (Library Association 
Record, 1920) 

A copy of Shakespeare's Works which formerly belonged to Dr. 
Johnson. (Review of English Studies, 1927). 

The last article refers to a 1747 edition of Shakespeare which is in the 
College Library.

THE ARTS AND CRAFTS GALLERY. 

The Curators. 

Important additions and rearrangements have been made during the 
session mainly to the prehistoric section, Welsh folk-craft and pottery. 
In the prehistoric section 33 pieces have been added, including two rare 
stone axe hammers from Penmaenmawr, North Wales, also a collection of 
Danish stone implements, including fine axe hammers, chipped axes, 
gouges, chisels, daggers from simple graves, Dolmens of oldest type without 
passage, passage graves and stone cists. Many of these came from the 
recent sale of a very fine collection dispersed in London. 

With the gathering of examples of Welsh folk-craft considerable pro- 
gress has been made, through the kindness, co-operation and activity of 
friends of the College, and some fine pieces of slip- ware pottery and turned 
and shaped pieces of woodwork of the 17th and 18th century have been 
secured. In these are included two very fine pieces of slip- ware of con- 
siderable importance, acquired through Mr. G. O. Roberts, Swansea. Mr. 
Jenkin Humphreys, Aberystwyth, has made several gifts to this section, 
they include three rare and fine love spoons, sugar cutters, candlesticks, 
etc. Professor Gwilym Owen has given a very fine slip- ware dish, and has 
also secured two other important objects — a fine wooden spoon and fork. 
Mr. John Jenkins, of Aberystwyth, has given a rare slip- ware dish with a 
very primitive pattern. Professor Stanley Roberts has been the means of 
adding much to the collection. The opportunity for purchases in Aberyst- 
wyth has been particularly fortunate. In the local sale rooms five fine 
examples of early slip-ware dishes have been acquired ; besides these, an 
extremely interesting slip-ware bird as well as an early tobacco cutter of an 
unusual design have been bought in the town. It is to be greatly hoped 
that many will help to strengthen this very important side of our study. 

The collection of pottery has been considerably augmented by the 
purchase of 26 pieces from the Kiln of Charles Vyse, of Chelsea, all of which 
are specially fine in form and colour. Other additions include the work of 
A. G. Hopkins of Lambeth. Four groups of animal studies by Stella R. 
Crofts of Illford — " Deer running," " Barbary sheep," "Antelopes" (twor 
groups). Seven pieces by Frances E. Richards, Highgate ; Studies of animals 
in stoneware by S. J. Finnemore — " Boar " ; H. C. Whaite — " Goats " ; 
C. M. Stockdale — " Elephant " ; Students of the Central School of Arts and 
Crafts, London. A very fine example of white salt glazed stoneware, finely 
decorated by Martin Bros., of Southall, Middlesex, has also been acquired. 
The close acquaintance and study 'of these beautiful pieces has created 
amongst the students a great desire to produce some pottery of their own, 
and a revival of the craft of the potter in the district would be most welcome. 
Recent research shows that a useful ware was at one time made in the dis- 
trict. It is hoped that a Kiln will be built for the students of the College : 
this can be done at a small cost. 

The etchings acquired include two very excellent impressions from 
plates by Samuel Palmer of the final edition of the " Early Ploughman " and 
" The Bellman " recently published by the Cotswold Gallery and printed 
by Sir Frank Short, R.A.; Fred L. Griggs, A.R.A.; and Martin Hardie. 
Four prints by Frank Short of J. M. W. Turner's Liber Studorium, six very 
fine prints by T. Bouvrie Hoy ton, the most interesting of which are the 
" Head of a Model," " Highkreef Farm " and " Great Seaside Farm." 
Two prints by Edgar Wilson — " Dutch Eel Boats " and " Mill Bank " are 
valuable additions. Other purchases include three prints by Fred. V. Bur- 
ridge, Principal of the Central School of Arts and Crafts. These are the 
" Devon from Dartmoor " : "Whist Weather " and a fine study of "Harlech 
Castle." Some fine examples have also been acquired of the work of Job

Nixon — " Baker Street Underground " ; William Larkin — " The Cloth 
Hall, Ypres " ; " Le Quay du Rosaire, Bruges " ; " Man or bier Castle " ; 
" Underwood Street, Whitechapel " ; Percy Robertson — " Whitby Har- 
bour " ; Francis Dodd — " L. Pearson"; Esther Willoughby — "Country 
Life." The woodcuts illustrate the work of C. W. Taylor and Frank Med- 
worth. Important series of Japanese and Chinese pottery have been added 
including beautiful examples of Bezin Stone Ware. 

Important additions have been made to the Library devoted wholly 
to the Arts and Crafts. The purchases include five volumes from the Gregy- 
nog Press — Poems by George Herbert ; Chosen Essays by Edward Thomas ; 
Caniadau by Gwynn Jones ; Caneuon Ceiriog ; Poems by Henry Vaughan, 
all are illustrated with wooden engravings by Messrs. Maynard and Bray.

Clay, Sonnets. The Song of Songs and the Passion engraved by Eric Gill 
(Nonesuch Press), Earthenware and Stoneware by William Burton, F.G.S.

by Campbell Dodgson, C.B.E. Birds in England by E. M. Nicholson, with 
fine woodcuts by Daglish. Twenty-four Woodcuts of Cambridge by J. F. 
Greenwood. 

Among the gifts to be recorded is an old English silver watch, given by 
the late Mr. O. M. Williams, Lindisfarne, Aberystwyth. A very interesting 
and valuable gift has been given by Mrs. Hughes Griffiths in memory of 
her brother, the late Principal J. H. Davies, M.A. In the collection is 
included the Communion Plate from Llangeitho which was used by the Rev. 
Daniel Rowland, also a table which was once his property, Communion 
silver lustre cup from Pengarn Chapel, glass, pottery, two early chairs, etc.

HALLS OF RESIDENCE FOR WOMEN STUDENTS. 



Senior Warden : Mrs. K. Guthkelch. 



The most important development in the life of the women students of 
the University College of Wales this session has been the opening of Plyn- 
lymon as a new and experimental Hall of Residence for 50 women students. 
The three houses in Marine Terrace, formerly used as a men's hostel, were 
transformed by the new Warden, Mrs. E. C. Hart, into a pleasant and whole- 
some residence, and the happiness of its inmates during the first session 
seems to have justified the experiment. It is a pleasure to chronicle here 
the kind and loyal work of Mrs. Hart, who has not spared her- 
self in any of the labours attached to the initial year of such an institu- 
tion. I am also grateful for the continued help and efficiency of my 
colleagues, Miss Macgregor, Miss Turner and Miss Bedson, and of the house- 
keeper, Mrs. Lloyd, and of Miss Thould, the trained nurse at Glen View. 
Thanks to all these, the year at all the Halls has been a happy one, and 
save for some cases of influenza at the two smaller Halls, a very healthy 
one as well. Probably none save those responsible for the welfare of such 
large groups of students as those at the U.C.W. Halls can realise how enor- 
mous is the importance and how heavy the work involved in the safe- 
guarding of the students' health and spirits by the creation of a right sur- 
rounding. Such labours include the care and beautifying of their actual 
dwelling-place, the maintenance of order and wholesome discipline in the 
house, and the supply of good food. Given such a background, the 
students are able to respond to the fullest extent to the intellectual 
challenge of their lectures at the College. 

The number of students in residence for the session shows a slight 
increase over those for 1925-26. The deliberate reduction of about 20 from 
Alexandra Hall balances the larger number at the third additional hostel. 
The numbers stand therefore as follows : — 



We anticipate about the same or slightly fewer students next session, 
as a large number of 5th and even 6th year students have now completed 
their work. 

I shall be on duty once more with the School of Library Service 
during a fortnight in August ; and in addition to three Summer Schools 
and a League of Nations Union Plenary Conference entertained last 
summer, I undertook the housing at Christmas of a joint conference of 
the Students' Christian Movement and Urdd y Deyrnas.

1924- 25 4 87 

1925- 26 ... ... 4 „ 93 

1926- 27 4 „ 93 

2. Training. 

Training proceeded on normal lines and a steadily increasing interest was 
shown throughout the session in all branches of the work. The usual four 
days' training held at the beginning of the summer term was well attended 
and Capt. R. S. D. Stuart, Adjutant of the Birmingham and Bristol con- 
tingents, again came to assist in the instruction. 

3. Camp and Annual Inspection. 

The Annual Camp at Pwllheli was probably the most successful of all 
recent camps. In spite of adverse weather conditions much valuable work 
was done. The contingent was inspected by Colonel Howard Vyse, C.M.G., 
D.S.O., who reported most favourably on the general smartness of the corps 
and its keenness and steadiness on parade. 

4. Camp Sports, 

For the first time since the war the contingent finished third in the all 
round camp sports tournament. This is a splendid achievement for so 
small a contingent and was the result of splendid individual efforts and 
excellent team work. Richards was first home in the cross country run 
and first in both the mile and the half mile, while L. Howells won the 220 
yards. 

5. Musketry. 

The improvement reported last year has been maintained. The con- 
tingent team improved its position in the camp shooting competition from 
sixth to third. The best scores during classification were : — 

Officer Cadet Shannon ... ... 93 out of 105. 

Officer Cadet Shelton ... ... 92 out of 105. 

Major H. F. Stimson ... ... 91 out of 105. 

6. Signalling, 

This important branch of the work is now receiving its due share of 
attention. Under Cpl. Davies, D.M., and L-Cpl. Howell, L.S., a small squad 
is making satisfactory progress. Both these N.C.O.'s passed the standard 
and classification tests.

8. Clothing and Equipment. 

A second suit of clothing has been purchased this year, so that in future 
cadets will be provided with two suits of clothing. Equipment and rifles' 
are in good condition. 

9. Headquarters Accommodation. 

Through the courtesy of Professor David de Lloyd the Corps has now 
the use of an upper room at No. 2, King Street, for the storage of clothing 
and equipment. The necessary alterations will be completed during the 
vacation. 

10. Departures. 

(i) At the end of the present session the Contingent will lose the ser- 
vices of Lieut. M. A. H. Tincker who for the last three years has 
served the corps loyally and efficiently. We thank him for his 
valuable assistance and wish him every success in the new and 
important post to which he has been appointed. 

(ii) The corps will also shortly lose the services of Sergeant-Instructor 
Crispin, D.C.M., M.M., who is due to return to his regiment in 
September. Sergeant Crispin was posted to Aberystwyth when 
the contingent consisted of one officer and sixty cadets. He 
leaves it but seven short of establishment. Most of the improve- 
ment in musketry and signalling is due to his expert guidance. 
All members of the corps view his departure with regret and wish 
him success in his future career. 

12. Acknowledgments. 

In conclusion I should like to place on record my deep appreciation 
of the valuable assistance and advice I receive from Professor T. Campbell 
James, the secretary of the Military Education Committee, and of the loyal 
co-operation of my brother officers, Lieutenants C. W. Davies and M. A. H. 
Tincker.

Owing to the opening of a new Farm Institute in the College Area the 
number of students taking junior courses in the Department was much 
smaller than usual. It is quite possible that in future years this may have 
an unfavourable effect upon the entry of students to take our advanced 
courses also, as in the past we have been able to select the best students 
of the lower classes to pursue our degree and diploma courses. 

The work done by students of all grades was on the whole very satis- 
factory. 

As already indicated we had only relatively few students taking the 
Short Course in Agriculture. Most members of the class however did 
excellent work and it is anticipated that some of them will return to pursue 
either the Diploma or the Degree Course. 

The Diploma students, both agricultural and dairying, attained a 
higher standard than usual with their work. In addition to very creditable 
performances at our College Diploma Examinations, many of them were 
very successful with several outside examinations. Four students com- 
pleted the examination for the National Diploma in Agriculture, two suc- 
ceeded in passing Part I. of the same examination, four passed the examina- 
tion for the National Diploma in Dairying and one secured the Diploma of 
the British Dairy Farmers' Association. 

Students pursuing the Degree Course did not exhibit a high order of 
intellectual capacity. They worked well, however, throughout the session 
and of the seven candidates who took the Final University Examination 
only one failed to satisfy the examiners. 

Last year, I had to refer to the great loss which the Department had 
suffered in the passing away of our late Veterinary Instructor. During 



103 

the past session, Mr. Albert Parry, M.R.C.V.S., who acted as Temporary 
Veterinary Instructor, provided all the courses needed in Veterinary 
Science, and I have to express my gratitude for the very efficient manner 
in which he performed his duties. 

We are much indebted to a former student, Captain W. A. Morgan, 
for his generosity in presenting a number of very useful books to the Depart- 
mental Library. 

Before concluding this report, I feel it is essential to make some reference " 
to the fact that, owing to lack of funds, it is almost impossible for the work 
of the Department to be conducted efficiently. At present, both the teaching 
and the research work have to suffer to a very considerable extent on 
account of lack of adequate funds. It is to be hoped that in the near 
future something may be done to improve our financial position so as to 
enable us to provide satisfactory facilities for conducting both the ordinary 
routine and the research work of the Department. 

My best thanks are due, not only to my colleagues in the Agricultural j 
Department, but also to members of the staff of several other Departments 
of the College, for their very helpful co-operation throughout the session. 

AGRICULTURAL CHEMISTRY. 

Mr. T. W. Fag an. 

The number of students attending the classes in Agricultural Chemistry 
during the past session was as follows : — 



Short Course in Agriculture ... ... ... ... 18 

Continuation Course in Agriculture ... ... ... 10 

Diploma Course in Dairying, ist year ... ... 9 

Diploma Course in Dairying, 2nd year .. . ... ... 11

Short and Continuation Courses. 

All members of the short course class worked well and showed great 
keenness and interest in the subject. Ten returned for the Continuation 
Class, nine of whom passed the required examination at the termination of 
the course. The short course class in Agricultural Chemistry compared with 
previous years shows a considerable decrease in number. This is mainly 
accounted for by the opening of the Farm Institute at Carmarthen, which 
in future years is likely to absorb the large majority of these students. 

Diploma in Agriculture. . 

The number taking the Diploma Course shows a slight increase on last 
year. The majority were hard workers and seven completed the course for 
the College Diploma. In addition, nine members of the class presented 
themselves for examination in Agricultural Chemistry for the National 
Diploma in Agriculture, eight being successful. 

Degree Subsidiary. 

The work of the four students taking this course was distinctly good, 
and all were successful in their examination. 



104 

Degree Final. 

The final class in Chemistry with Agricultural Bio-chemistry consisted 
of three students. All did solid and satisfactory work and were successful 
in their examination. 

H 'on ours. 

The two students taking Chemistry with Agricultural Bio-chemistry 
did extremely good work in Agricultural Bio-chemistry, the one taking First 
Class Honours, the other Second Class Honours (Division 2). 

Post Graduate. 

Mr. J. E. Watkin, B.Sc. (Thomas Davies scholar) presented in the form 
of four papers the result of his work on " The influence of field treatments 
and other factors on the chemical composition and nutritive value of farm 
crops" as a thesis for the degree of Ph.D. The thesis was very highly spoken 
of both by the External Examiner and Referee, and Mr. Watkin was granted 
the degree. 

Mr. R. E. Evans, M.Sc, obtained a Ministry of Agriculture Scholarship 
as the result of his research work on Bog Hay which he presented as a thesis 
for his M.Sc. degree last year. Mr. Evans at present is engaged on a special 
investigation in animal nutrition at Cambridge University. 

Mr. A. L. Provan, B.Sc. (in collaboration with Mr. R. O. Davies) is 
working on the relationship between various factors and the ash constituents 
of milk. The first part of their joint work has already been published, the 
second part is still in progress. 

In conclusion, I wish to express my thanks to my colleague, Mr. R. O. 
Davies, for his very efficient and loyal co-operation in all the work of the 
Department. 

The papers published during the year are as follows : — 

In the Welsh Journal of Agriculture, Vol. Ill , 1927.

The majority of the students showed marked industry and keenness 
during the session. In addition to the regular classes special arrangements 
were made this session whereby students could read privately in the depart- 
ment, books and papers bearing on topics dealt with in the lectures. 
Almost every student, both degree and diploma, made good use of and 
appeared to appreciate the facilities provided. 

Five of the six students who entered for the College examination in 
Agricultural Botany passed successfully. Seven students sat for the 
National Diploma in Agriculture examination in Agricultural Botany and 
four passed. Seven students were awarded the College Diploma in Agricul- 
ture and ten the College Diploma in Dairying. 

Mr. J. G. Davies, B.Sc, who last year held a scholarship from the 
Department of Industrial and Scientific Research, continued his investi- 
gations on the cytology and genetics of cocksfoot and this year he presented 
a thesis and was awarded by the University of Wales the degree of Ph.D. 
Mr. Davies is at present in charge of other work at the Station under the 
supervision of Professor Stapledon. 

Two diploma students and one degree student are assisting during the 
summer vacation with experimental work at the Welsh Plant Breeding 
Station and I understand that they show both keenness and ability and are 
doing valuable work. A former student, Mr. M. T. Thomas, is also doing 
work temporarily at the Station for the summer months. 

The department is again greatly indebted to Mr. W. Davies for courses 
of lectures on grassland agronomy given to degree and diploma students 
and for the interest and help he gave to the students apart from the organised 
course. 

Mr. D. Walters Davies, B.Sc, the Adviser in Mycology, again delivered 
a series of lectures to the Continuation Course students and has from time 
to time provided valuable material for classes. Mr. Davies's help is much 
appreciated. 

A special feature of the session was a course of lectures given by Pro- 
fessor Stapledon on his return from the Southern Hemisphere. These 
lectures, covering a wide field and abundantly illustrated by specimens and 
lantern slides, were attended and appreciated by all grades of students from 
this department and by staff and students from the departments of Botany 
and Geography. 

It is with pleasure that we welcome Professor Stapledon back to the 
department in renewed health.

I have pleasure in recording the efficient work of my colleague Mr. M 4 
A. H. Tincker, M.A., M.Sc., and thank him for his ready co-operation in all 
matters relating to the work of the department. 

Mr. Tincker completed during the session that aspect of his work dealing 
more particularly with the chemical composition of plants subjected to 
varied periods of natural illumination, on which subject he read a paper at 
the British Association at Oxford entitled " The Effect of Length of Day 
Upon the Growth and Internal Composition of Some Economic Plants." 
In co-operation with members of the staff of the Welsh Plant Breeding 
Station Mr. Tincker continued his investigations relative to yield in oats, 
having special regard to the tillering of spaced plants. 

In co-operation with Mr. D. Walters Davies I have continued work on 
the influence of chemicals on the growth of wheat. 

Genetical studies are in progress dealing with bunt resistance in wheat 
by which it is hoped to improve the local variety, Hen Gymro. Further 
work has been carried out on the resistance of oat varieties to several 
biological species of loose and covered smut and on the factors which 
influence infection and invasion of the host plant. 

A disease of grasses caused by Epichloe typhina is also under study. 

I have pleasure once more in thanking Professor Stapledon for allowing 
full use of the facilities of the Welsh Plant Breeding Station for research 
and also for demonstration purposes in connection with classes of students.

WELSH PLANT BREEDING STATION. 

Director : Professor R. G. Stapledon. 

I returned to the Station in November after nearly ten months' absence 
in Australia and New Zealand It is a pleasure to place on record that the 
affairs of the Station prospered exceedingly in my absence and the Station 
is under an obligation to Mr. Jenkin for the efficient manner in which he 
attended to all details, ably and loyally supported by all members of staff. 
I was able to make an extensive investigation of the grassland conditions 
and problems of New Zealand and of some of the higher rainfall belts of 
Australia and to make contacts with investigators in the Southern Hemis- 
phere which will prove very helpful in connection with the researches in 
progress at the Station. The Departments of Agriculture ; the Stock and 
Station Agents ; Station Owners and Farmers in the Dominions and States 
visited gave me every possible assistance, and I am under a debt of gratitude 
to all alike for much generous hospitality and detailed information. 



During the present season the Station has been visited by over 900 
farmers including large parties from Herefordshire and Worcestershire as 
well as from the counties affiliated to the College. As in previous years 
our visitors have included research workers from the Dominions, from the 
United States of America and from European Countries ; and we have had 
a Swedish and a New Zealand student working at the Station for some 
months during the summer. 

The equipment at the Farm has been increased by the addition of further 
field laboratories, while the fencing off of the chief fields into experimental 
blocks has been steadily pushed forward. 

An important development has been the setting up of a sub- meteorologi- 
cal station on the hill farm of Mr. Davies at Lletyevanhen. This has been 
rendered possible by the Ministry of Agriculture through the Air Ministry 
providing the necessary equipment. The Station is indebted to Sir L. 
Loveden Pryse, Bart., and to Mr. Davies for permission to set up the sub- 
station and to Miss Evans of Bontgoch for her invaluable assistance in taking 
the daily readings. The possession of the sub-station is proving of the 
greatest possible value in connection with all county trials conducted at 
high elevations. 

The weather during the present season has been disastrous for the work 
in progress, all departments alike having laboured under the greatest pos- 
sible difficulties and in certain cases no advances will have been made. 

A feature of the work has been a great extension of the critical trials 
now conducted in the counties rendered possible on the one hand by the 
fact that Mr. William Davies has been able to work out a co-ordinated 
scheme of experimentation and on the other by the unfailing assistance of 
the County Organisers, landowners and farmers to all of whom the Station 
is greatly indebted. 

Some of the pedigree strains of the grasses are now in a sufficiently 
advanced stage of breeding to be tested in the counties, and these trials are 
creating a widespread interest and are giving results full of promise for the 
future. 

A new direction has been given to the general grassland investigations — 
The Station, thanks to a special grant from the Ministry of Agriculture, 
has been able to initiate trials bearing upon the important problem of the 
higher manuring of pastures. This work is being conducted in conjunction 
with Mr. Fagan and the Department of Agricultural Chemistry and is likely 
to become a very important feature of our researches during coming seasons. 

In view of the fact that our pedigree strains will shortly be available in 
increasing amount a technique is being worked out with a view to conduct- 
ing feeding tests with sheep on pure plots and consequently Mr. Martin 
Jones is now working at this problem in addition to his investigations with 
oats. 

In so far as the routine genetical and breeding work is concerned it is 
only necessary to say that Mr. Jenkin (grasses) Capt. Williams (clovers) and 
Mr. E. T. Jones (oats) are making steady progress along pre-arranged lines — 
the desired results will follow given the necessary continuity and a sufficient 
number of reasonably favourable growing seasons. 

The staff of the Station continue to work in closest co-operation with 
that of the Department of Agricultural Botany, good progress being made 
in relation to a number of mycological and physiological problems. 

I 



io8' 

The organisation of the Station is now stabilised and working very 
satisfactorily. As in past seasons Miss Rhoda Jones has rendered invaluable 
assistance in connection with foreign literature and in seeing our various 
bulletins through the press. Mr. J. W. Watkins, the Superintendent of the 
Farm and Garden, has admirably co-ordinated all the difficult out-door 
working arrangements despite the fact that they become increasingly com- 
plicated as the years advance. Mr. J. O. Parry- Williams (the Secretary) 
by his careful attention to detail has increasingly lightened the administra- 
tive side of my own duties. The research workers have derived every assis- 
tance from the increasingly accurate and purposeful endeavours of the 
clerical and technical staff. 

In addition to the generous annual donation of ^1,000 from Sir Laurence 
Philipps, Bart., the Station is indebted to a contribution of ^25 from Mr. 
S. M. Bligh, of Cilmery Park, Builth Wells, and to the following Seed Houses 
for contributions towards the cost of publication of the Station bulletin on 
red clover : — Messrs. Dickson and Robinson, Cathedral Street, Manchester ; 
Messrs. John Donaldson and Co., 24, St. Giles Street, Edinburgh ; Messrs. 
Eastes and Loud, Ashford, Kent ; Messrs. Hasler and Company, Ltd., 
Dunmow, Essex ; Messrs. A. G. Leighton, Ltd., Newcastle, Staffs. ; Messrs. 
McGill and Smith, Ltd., Ayr, N.B. ; Messrs. Pattullo, Higgs and Co., Ltd., 
Orpington, Kent ; Messrs. Charles Sharpe and Co., Ltd., Sleaford ; Messrs. 
Smith Bros. (Basingstoke), Ltd., Bunnian Place, Basingstoke; Messrs. 
Trump's Ltd., Barnstaple ; Messrs. Edward Webb and Sons (Stourbridge), 
Ltd., Wordsley, Stourbridge. 

During the session the Director read a paper on " Grassland " at the 
Agricultural Organisers' Conference held at Cambridge in April, and a paper 
on " The effect of Meteorological Conditions on the Amount and Nutritive 
Value of Pasture and Hay " at the Agricultural Meteorological Observers' 
Conference, in London, and on April 20th he broadcast a talk on " Grass- 
land in two Hemispheres." Capt. Williams lectured on red clover at Kes- 
teven ; Mr. William Davies on " When to Put Fields up to Hay " at Win- 
chester, and Mr. Martin G. Jones on oats at Glanrafon, Llawrbettws, Corwen._ 
These lectures were given in connection with the Ministry of Agriculture's 
arrangements with the National Farmers' Union.

VETERINARY SCIENCE. 

Mr. A. Parry. 

Short Course. 

Eighteen students attended. Lectures were given in elementary 
Physiology and the anatomy of farm animals. Hygiene and Dietetics were 
fully dealt with, methods of manipulation of animals, ageing, shoeing and 
methods of administering medicines, periods of gestation. The cause 
and prevention of the contagious and infectious diseases affecting domestic 
animals in this country, and cause, prevention and treatment of the common 
ailments affecting farm stock. The students at the terminal examination 
proved to be of a very high standard. 

Continuation Course ... ... ... ... 10 

Diploma in Agriculture ... ... ... ... 12 

Diploma in Dairying * ... ... ... ... 6 

For this class the anatomy and physiology of domestic animals was 
more fully dealt with, also the methods of digestion of food ; Hygiene, 
Dietetics, and all the subjects dealt with in the Short Course Class were more 
fnlly dealt with ; the management of dairy cattle in health and disease, 
the diseases affecting dairy cattle at the time of parturition and during 



no 



lactation. The methods of producing graded milk and the diseases which 
prohibit the selling of graded milk. The building of cowsheds adaptable for 
producing clean milk. A demonstration was given on a tuberculous carcase 
and its anatomy. The confirmation of the horse and diseases to look for 
were fully dealt with. Six students out of eight were successful in gaining 
the Diploma. 

LAND SURVEYING AND FARM BUILDING CONSTRUCTION. 

Mr. G. T. Bassett. 

The Class consisted of nine students who attended regularly the lectures 
and practical demonstrations. Most of them did well in the Terminal 
Examinations and six of them passed the subjects in the N.D.A. Examina- 
tion. 

DAIRYING. 

Miss D. M. Evans. 

The number of students taking courses in Dairying during session 
1926-27 was as follows : — 

1 st Year Diploma in Dairying ... ... 6 

2nd Year Diploma in Dairying ... ... 6 

6 Weeks' Course in Practical Dairying ... 22 
Diploma students in Agriculture taking 

Dairying, 3rd term ... ... ... 9 

Special Course (one term) ... ... ... 3 

In addition to the above, 14 Diploma students remained at the Dairy 
during the vacation for periods varying from four to eight weeks to gain fur- 
ther experience in practical work. 

The 10 weeks' course in Dairying and House Management was discon- 
tinued as from the end of session 1925-26 and a six weeks' course in practical 
dairying only was substituted. 

In September, 1926, four students gained the N.D.D. and one the 
B.D.F.D. and Silver Medal. At the end of the present session 10 were 
awarded the College Diploma in Dairying. 

As in past years, I examined Travelling Dairy classes in Montgomery- 
shire and Cardiganshire and in addition, this year, students taking courses 
in dairying at the Pibwrlwyd Farm Institute, Carmarthen. 

During the year a large number of enquiries were received in matters 
relating to Dairying in general. 

Miss M. A. V. Griffiths, B.D.F.D., an old student, was appointed as 
Temporary Assistant in Dairying for the summer months and it gives me 
much pleasure to express my appreciation to her for the efficient way she 
carried out her duties. 

BOOK-KEEPING. 

Mr. J. L. Newbon. 

The course was attended by twenty-four Agricultural and Dairying 
Diploma students and ten Continuation Course students, and the standard 
of the work done by the students compared very favourably with previous 
sessions. Several students were desirous of dealing with the subject in a 
more advanced form but the time allocated to the class did not allow this 
to be done*

EXTRACT FROM THE LATE MR. W. E. GLADSTONE'S 
SPEECH AT NOTTINGHAM. 

The Times of September 28th, 1877. 

Let me point to another case with which I am personally 
acquainted, to show you that wherever primary education is 
loved, the higher education must be loved and taught also. 
I speak of the country of Wales, in which I have the happiness 
to spend a large portion of my time ; and there is no part of 
the population of the country — and I say it freely and boldly 
in your hearing — there are few parts which can compete with 
Wales, and there is no part which can exceed it, from one end 
of the island to the other, in the earnest, ardent, and, I may 
say, passionate love for instruction. They are a religious 
people, and a people deeply enamoured of knowledge, and 
what they have done has been done with very little assistance. 
With no assistance at all from any public fund of any kind, 
they have, within the last five or six years, founded a large 
and important College at Aberystwyth. Is it possible for you 
to have a stronger proof that the existence of a love for primary 
education does lead on, and must lead on, to every great effort 
for the establishment of higher education ?

purposes, and preferable to all payments thereout ; for which 
Legacy the receipt of the Tieasurers, for the time being, of 
the said College shall be a sufficient discharge to my Executors . 



FORM OF BEQUEST OF RESIDUE, OR SHARE OF

The stable element in the Elementary class was composed mostly of 
first year students, who hope eventually to take Honours in the other 
classical language. These started at the beginning and in nearly every 
case made excellent progress. They should do well in Intermediate 
next year. I would single out for mention the name of Miss Marion O. R. 
Thomas. 

The Intermediate class contained some good workers, though there 
were several weak members. Mr. J. J. A. Thomas more than fulfilled 
the promise of the earlier session and obtained high marks in the examina- 
tion. It is to be regretted that this student, owing to the claims of his 
Honours subject, is unable to proceed to a higher grade. 

The number of defections during the course of the Session is an 
unsatisfactory feature, both at the Elementary and at the Intermediate 
stage. It is clear that some students are not prepared to make the effort 
required for the study of Greek. 

The three Subsidiary students were satisfactory throughout and did 
very well, in particular Miss Gwen M. Jones. 

At the Final stage the steady progress made by Mr. T. Hugh Roberts, 
particularly in Prose Composition, was very gratifying. He was much 
interested in the subject-matter of the books read and did very credit- 
ably in the examination. 

I am much indebted to Miss A. Woodward and to Mr. Baillie- 
Reynolds for the valuable help they have given. We have to congratulate 
Miss Woodward on her appointment as Resident Lecturer at the Royal 
Holloway College, University of London. Miss Woodward's departure 
will be a serious loss to the Department. During the seven years of her 
assistant-lectureship she has shov/n herself a most thorough and con- 
scientious teacher of the Classics, and carries with her to her new post 
the best wishes of staff and students alike.

As in previous years, Professor Bensly has lectured to the more 
advanced students on passages in the set -books illustrating the principles 
of Textual Criticism. These lectures are a valuable part of the course 
and always much appreciated. 

The Head of the Department has again taken part in the production 
of the new Welsh version of the Greek Testament. Corinthians II. is 
now practically ready for the press. Besides a few reviews of classical 
books which have appeared in various journals, he has in the course of the 
session written for the forthcoming new edition of the Encyclopaedia 
Brittanica an article on " The Constitution of Athens." He is also 
privileged to help in the new edition of Liddell and Scott. 

LATIN. 

Professor J. F. Mountford. 

In January I took charge of the Department. I am very grateful to 
Mr. E. D. T. Jenkins for the admirable manner in which he had organised 
the work in the first term, and had taken many of the Latin classes in addi- 
tion to those held in his own Department. Thanks to his efforts and those 
of Mr. Baillie Reynolds and Miss Woodward, the change in the head- 
ship of the Department was effected with a minimum of inconvenience 
to the students. 

The Library Committee has generously freed the Department from 
outstanding liabilities, and has thereby enabled me to fill in a number 
of gaps in the equipment of the Latin section of the Library and to add 
new volumes as they are published. 

During these two terms the Departmental work has been conducted 
along lines which have proved successful during past years. I consider 
myself fortunate in coming to a department so well planned, and the 
only changes contemplated for the future are in matters of detail.

*This number will be modified by the Supplemental examinations 
in September, when some of those who failed Intermediate in June will 
probably pass. 

The number in Intermediate was smaller than last year ; in Sub- 
sidiary it was larger. Final remained the same size. 

Section D continues to show its usefulness and three students pro- 
gressed sufficiently to pass the Intermediate examinations in June. 
Others will probably pass in September. 

In the Intermediate Course good work was done by several students, 
especially by Mr. B. G. Owens. Many of the better students are intend- 
ing to take Honours in other Departments. 

The students in the Modified course were not as good as the regular 
Intermediate class, but the work of Mr. R. J. Roberts was excellent. 

Subsidiary students reached a good average standard, and a grati- 
fying percentage will proceed to Final or Honours next year. The work 
of Miss Marion Thomas shows unusual promise. 

Two students in the Final class withdrew from College for reasons 
of health ; the two who remained were successful in the examinations. 

In the Honours course no student gained a First Class, Mr. Morris 
Kyffin and Mr. G. Rhys Williams were creditably placed in the first 
division of Class II. One student was placed in the second division of 
Class II., and two were placed in Class III. 

During the Session Professor Bensly has delivered a course on St. 
Augustine's Confessions to the Honours students and has taken them 
individually. His wide scholarship and zeal are a great asset to the Depart- 
ment. 

Throughout these two terms I have received the most loyal co-opera- 
tion from Mr. Baillie Reynolds and Miss Woodward, and their advice on 
countless matters has been invaluable. 

It is with great regret that we have learned of the resignation of 
Miss Woodward. She will leave behind her an enviable reputation as a 
teacher and colleague. The departure of one who has signally com- 
bined experience, tact, scholarship, and a personal interest in her students, 
will be a distinct loss to the College. 

During the last year Mr. Baillie Reynolds has Continued his important 
excavations and the preparation of reports upon them. Miss Wood- 
ward has continued in the editorship of Latin Teaching. The Head of 
the Department has a long article and two reviews in proof and a volume 
in an advanced state of preparation. During the year the following 
papers have been published : — 

By Professor J. F. Mountford : The Harmonics of Ptolemy (Trans. 
Am. Phil. Soc). 

- By Mr. P. K. Baillie Reynolds : Excavations on the Site of the 
Roman Fort at Caerhun (Archaeologia Cambrensis). 

By Miss Woodward: Latin Teaching (editing).

The Science students are not included in the above ; two classes were 
formed, one for Chemistry students and one for the students of other 
sciences. The Chemistry students worked regularly throughout the 
session and made very satisfactory progress. 

The work of the Department on the Arts' side was also satisfactory 
in all branches. Several of the Intermediate Class show considerable 
promise. Mr. Handel Edwards is the most conspicuous of the Subsidiary 
Class. The two Honours candidates this year worked excellently through- 
out the session and Miss Lilian Shelley was placed in Class I. and Miss 
Bennett in 2a. (with Oral proficiency) . Miss Shelley had already taken 
her Certificate of Oral Proficiency at her Final Stage. She was awarded 
a Studentship at the end of the Session. 

Mr. Herzog, the part-time German assistant, proved to be an ex- 
cellent teacher and is returning to his old school in Leipzig and to his part- 
time work in the University. Next session Mr. Hauert from Hamburg, 
will fill the post. Several students were granted travelling scholarships 
again this session and are proceeding to Germany for the long vacation. 
These scholarships are of immense benefit to the individual recipients 
and to the department generally. 

Under the University scheme for the exchange of teachers, Mr. 
Herzog delivered a course of lectures at Bangor. Mr. David Evans 
has given several public lectures in the neighbourhood. The usual 
lectures on German Tragedy were given to the Honours English students 
and one lecture on German Political Parties was given to three students 
from the department of International Politics.

No important changes were made in the organisation of the depart- 
ment ; the students on the whole took an intelligent interest in their 
studies, and particularly good work was done by the Subsidiary and 
by the first year Honours students. The six students who pursued the 
last, year of the Honours course were extremely industrious and did their 
best, but the results of the University degree examination were disappoint- 
ing. One candidate, Mr. Edgar France, obtained a clear first class ; 
of the others, three were placed in the second division of the second class, 
one in the third class, and one failed and was granted a pass at the Final 
grade. All but one, and one Final candidate, were granted the Certifi- 
cate of Oral Proficiency. 

Eight students were awarded travelling scholarships at the end 
of last session and spent a large part of the long vacation in France. 
Ten first year Honours student's were recently granted travelling scholar- 
ships and arrangements have been made for them to go abroad this 
summer. The enormous benefit derived from these travelling scholar- 
ships by individual students and by the department generally becomes 
more and more obvious every year, and our deep gratitude is due to 
the donors. 

Two students who pursued the first year of the Honours course during 
the Session 1926-1927 were appointed, by the Minister of Public Instruc- 
tion, English Assistants in Normal Colleges in France for last session. 
They will return here next October to pursue the last year of their Honours 
course. I hope that several students will spend next session in France 
under the same conditions. 



53 



Mr. George Edgar Parfitt, who qualified here for the degree of B.A., 
with Honours in French, in June, 1926, has just completed, after two 
years' study in the Sorbonne, an important piece of research which 
has been accepted for the degree of Doctor of the University of 
Paris. 

Seven past students are now writing, under my direction, disserta- 
tions for the degree of M.A. 

An article by Miss E. M. Phillips on " Sainte- Beuve's criticism of 
English Poetry " appeared in the French Quarterly for last September. 

Miss Jane Evans, who took a brilliant first class in Honours in 
June, 1927, was recently awarded the University Modern Language 
Studentship and she will spend next session at the University of Stras- 
bourg, where she will continue her research work on Maurice Barres. 
This session, she proved to be a most successful Part-time Assistant 
in the French department of this College. To her, as well as to Miss 
E. M. Phillips and to Dr. A. B. Thomas, I wish to express my great 
indebtedness for their loyal and valuable collaboration. 

Under the new scheme for the interchange of teachers between the 
Welsh University Colleges, I gave at Swansea, during the Lent term, a 
course of four Lectures, followed by discussion, on Literary Criticism 
in France in the xixth Century. 

Again I must make an earnest appeal for better accommodation 
and equipment. The tutorial and advanced work particularly has to 
be done at present under very trying conditions which are decidedly 
unfair to the students and to the staff.

In order to give more attention to individual students, I duplicated 
my classes this session. I was also able in this way to find suitable hours 
in the mornings and avoid clashes with Public Lectures. 

I am glad to be able to report a growing interest in this subject on 
the part of language students. Mr. Gwynn Jones, student in the Depart- 
ment of Welsh, has attended the laboratory weekly for practical work 
on the Intonation of Welsh, and Mr. T. J. Phillips, of Alexandra Road 
Council School, has attended weekly in preparation for the study of a 
Welsh Dialect. Of the 33 students from the Department of French 
who took the Sessional Examination, 27 were successful.

I intend visiting the Laboratory for Experimental Phonetics at 
Hamburg in September. I am in correspondence with the head of the 
institution, Professor Calzia, and he has promised to show me all his 
apparatus.

The work of the Department for the past Session has been highly 
satisfactory. The classes at the several stages are still very large ; but 
we have been enabled to deal with the individual needs of the students 
more effectively than in previous years owing to the appointment of Mr. 
Earnshaw as an additional Assistant Lecturer, and his organisation and 
supervision of the essay work in general has already produced some ex- 
cellent results. The appointment was one that was long overdue ; but it 
was none the less welcome ; and we have been fortunate in securing the 
services of Mr. Earnshaw, a distinguished graduate of the University 
of Manchester, who has had some valuable experience in teaching. 

At the post-graduate stage, Mr. Shannon has been pursuing research 
on the subject of " Walter Pater as a literary critic." He has already 
collected a large amount of interesting material and it remains for him 
to organise that material with a view to submitting it as a thesis for a 
higher degree. It is moreover with pleasure that we record the success 
of two former students. Dr. Odon Schram, who has been specialising 
in English place names, was elected last October to a Research Fellow- 
ship at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, and was appointed Assistant 
Lecturer in English at the University of Liverpool. Mr Stewart Griffiths 
has also been appointed Assistant Lecturer in English at the University 
College of Nottingham. 

A high standard throughout was attained this year at the Univer- 
sity examinations. Twelve students were presented for the Honours 
examination ; and although two withdrew in consequence of ill-health, 
of the remainder, three, (Miss Ceridwen James, Miss Vera Thomas and 
Mr. Lewis Ivor Lewis) were placed in Class I., two in Class II., Division 
I., and five in Class II., Division II. A gratifying feature of the results 
was the absence of Third Classes. 

Of the First Year Honours students numbering 16 in all, 15 suc- 
ceeded in completing a satisfactory year's work. 



55 



At the Final (Pass) stage, out of 36 candidates who sat the examina- 
tion, 30 were successful. At the Subsidiary stage, out of 71 candidates, 
53 passed the College examination, while at the Intermediate stage, 
out of 62 candidates, 46 succeeded in completing the course. Five students 
took the Further Test and three were successful, thus qualifying for 
entrance to Honours work next session. 

Once again this year lectures in the Department have been delivered 
by members of other departments with a view to providing 
assistance in the comparative study of literature. We are grateful in 
particular to Professor Barbier who lectured on French Tragedy, and 
to Mr. David Evans who gave a short course on German Tragedy ; and 
in each case the courses were much appreciated by the students. Professor 
Bensly also lectured in his scholarly and inspiring fashion on " The 
Satires of Joseph Hall." 

I wish in conclusion to express my gratitude once again to Miss 
Winstanley and Mr. Garmonsway for their unfailing devotion and valuable 
help during the Session.

The Session 1927-28 has been a most successful one in the History 
Department. There has been a welcome increase in the numbers attend- 
ing the higher classes and a corresponding improvement in the quality 
of the work. The percentage of passes in the University examinations 
was very high, and the papers of the pupils revealed a thorough devotion 
to their study. Two students, Penry Samuel and C. E. Gittins, were 
awarded a First Class in Honours and their work reached a very high 
standard of merit. The final papers in the History of the Nineteenth 
Century at the Special Stage were thoroughly satisfactory, while the 
experiment of a compulsory text -book for European History at the 
Subsidiary Stage pro\/ed a complete success. 

A most important and interesting change is to be made for the next 
Session at the Intermediate Stage, when a course in General History will 
be substituted for the history of the British Isles which the pupils are 
supposed to have read in the County Schools. If successful, the course 
will be continued for future sessions, in order to provide teachers in the 
subject for the schools.

Instead of appointing a Lecturer in the Department to take the 
place of Mr. Cecil Jane who resigned the post at the close of last session, 
Mr. Sydney Herbert was asked to give us help during the session, and 
it is difficult to over-estimate his enthusiasm and driving power, and 
adequately to measure the success of his teaching on the mind and charac- 
ter of his pupils. I rejoice to think that his permanent services can be 
secured for the History Department. Professor Stanley Roberts took 
full charge, as usual, of the Intermediate Class, and continued to give 
most freely and willingly his valuable help to the Honours candidates 
and the Final Class, while Professor Lewis conducted his Palaeography 
work which becomes more and more essential for history pupils in view 
of the development of the study of Welsh History from original sources. 

PALAEOGRAPHY. 

Professor E. A. Lewis. 

The number of students requiring instruction in Palaeography 
was small. Four students attended the class during the Michaelmas and 
Lent Terms and made satisfactory progress.

During the first term the work of the Department was carried on 
without the services of an Assistant Lecturer. Mr. Percy George, a 
distinguished old student of the Department, entered upon his duties as 
Assistant Lecturer in January. The high quality of the sessional work 
in the Statistics and Public Finance sections of the Pass and Honours 
Courses reflected very creditably upon his skill and efficiency as a teacher. 
Special thanks are due to Mr. J. M. Rees for supervising and organising 
the courses in Statistics during the Michaelmas Term. 

The number of students pursuing the various courses in the depart- 
ment was slightly above the average. 

The Subsidiary Class contained 45 members, of whom 38 were 
in the Faculty of Arts, and seven in the Faculty of Science. The class 
on the whole was an exceedingly good one, there being several students 
of capacity and promise. Excellent work was done by Mr. Eynon Lloyd, 
Mr. Randall Lloyd, Mr. G. P. Jones, Mr. Eric Leonard Jones, and Miss 
Eryl Haydn Jones. 



57 



The Final Class numbered 23, of whom 17 took the alternative 
A. Course in Economics, four the alternative B. Course in Politics, and 
two the alternative C. Course in Agricultural Economics. Almost 
every member of the Class worked well and evinced keen interest in the 
various sections of the courses. The weekly discussion classes proved 
interesting and profitable. The following first year Honours students 
showed commendable promise for next year : — Miss J. E. Cash, Mr. 
D. W. Hopkins, Mr. M. Jolhffe, Mr. O. James, Mr. E. T. Griffiths, and 
Mr, E. Mansel Jones. 



The Honours Class, as regards quality and application, was hardly 
up to the standard of previous years. Of the nine taking the Examina- 
tion, four were placed in Class II., division I., four in Class II., division 
II., and one in Class III. Mr. E. L. Harry deserves special commenda- 
tion for his excellent progress ; his work-in the Agricultural Economics 
sections of the Honours Course (which were being offered for the first 
time under the direction of Mr. A. W. Ashby) reached a good first class 
standard. 



Post-graduate Research. — Six former students of the department 
qualified for the higher degrees of M.A. and M.Sc. in the June examina- 
tions. Of the five M.A. candidates, three presented interesting and 
valuable dissertations on certain problems in Welsh Economic History. 
Mr. Tudor Williams completed a suggestive dissertation on " Some Aspects 
of the Agrarian Problem in Wales in the sixteenth century" ; Mr. B. 
Myrddin Evans wrote on " The Welsh Coal Trade as revealed in the data 
of the unpublished Welsh Port Books, 1603— 17U9"; and Mr. G. W. 
Skone completed " A Study of Manorial Organisation in Medieval Pem- 
brokeshire." The two remaining M.A. candidates presented dissertations 
on post-war economic changes in South Wales ; Mr. W. J. Walters " The 
Reconstruction of the Iron, Steel and Tinplate Industries in South Wales " 
and Mr. Brinley Thomas, " The South Wales Coal Trade in its international 
and marketing aspects, 1921 to 1926." Mr. Thomas's dissertation 
reached a commendably high level, and he was awarded the degree "with 
distinction." Mr. Percy George secured the degree of M.Sc. for an ex- 
cellent dissertation on " The Money and Foreign Exchange problem 
' with special reference to the monetary experience of Great Britain 
and the cause of the dollar exchange in 1919-1925.' " 



Another post-graduate student in residence, Miss M. F. Jolliffe, B.A., 
made good progress during the year with her study of " The Financial 
Reconstruction of Austria." 



In the course of the session Mr. J. M. Rees has prepared a short 
volume on " Modern Welsh Industry and Trade," which the University 
Press Board propose to publish shortly ; he has also contributed 
a section to " A Bibliography of Welsh History for the use of Schools " 
now in preparation by the History group of the Guild of Graduates. In 
addition to minor publications in the Bulletin of Celtic Studies, I have 
myself prepared a brief article on " The Maritime Trade of Cardigan- 
shire in Tudor and Stuart times" for publication in the 1927-8 Trans- 
actions of the Cardiganshire Antiquarian Society. 



My best thanks are again due to my colleagues in the department 
for their cordial co-operation.

INTERNATIONAL POLITICS. 

Professor C. K. Webster. 

I have to include two years' work in this report, since last year I was 
travelling in the Far East at this period. In my absence Mr. Sydney 
Herbert took entire charge of the Department with his usual skill and 
energy. During the last year he has also given assistance to the History 
Department and at their request this association is to be continued. The 
result will be, I am sure, of great advantage to both Departments which 
have much in common. A Secretary-Librarian has been appointed in 
the International Politics Department to lighten his work on that side. 
The growth of the Library had in any case made such an appointment 
long overdue. 

The course of public lectures was this year on " Problems of the Far 
East." Mr. Herbert also continued his weekly lectures on Foreign Affairs. 
The other courses have been given as usual. I also gave a new course on 
a special period of Diplomatic History. 

There were no Wilson students during the two years owing to lack 
of funds but one has been awarded at the end of this term. Two post- 
graduate students have been engaged in research in connection with the 
Economic Department. Of former students Miss Friedlander has been 
awarded a Laura Spelman Rockefeller Fellowship and will study Child 
Labour in Central Europe. She is the third member of the Department to 
hold this Fellowship. Mr. Ifor Powell who has held one for the last two 
years has been in the Philippines investigating conditions there. Mr. 
Hughes Lewis, who took up International Politics in his fourth year, was 
appointed South Wales Organiser under the Welsh National Council of 
the League of Nations Union. 

I have continued the Teachers' Conferences in South Wales organised 
by the local authorities and the Teachers' Associations. They were well 
attended and much interest was shown. Mr. Herbert has given several 
lectures and courses at Coleg Harlech, and both he and I have addressed 
public meetings in Wales and England. The demand for such teaching 
is much greater than we can satisfy. 

I have published two articles " British Mediation between France 
and the United States, 1834-36 " (English Historical Review) and 
" L'Empire Britannique et la Societe des Nations" (L' Esprit Inter- 
national). Mr. Sydney Herbert has continued his enquiries in conjunction 
with Dr. George Green into the attitude of children towards other races 
and nationalities. He also published with Mr. Gauld, a late student of 
the Department, an article on " France and Her Immigration Problems " 
(Geography). 

In September, 1926, I went to Geneva for the Assembly of the League 
of Nations, afterwards visiting Frankfort, Dresden, Berlin and Hamburg. 
I then went to Oslo where I gave a course of six lectures at the Nobel 
Institute. I was received with the greatest kindness and hospitality, 
both in political and academic circles and was entertained by Dr. Nansen 
and others during my stay. 

I next left Britain on January 29th, 1927, and did not return until 
January 22nd, 1928, travelling about 40,000 miles in the course of the 
12 months.

From February to June I was at Harvard University where I lec- 
tured on British Foreign Policy in the Nineteenth Century. In the 
recess I visited Baltimore, New York, Chicago, and Washington and 
gave several addresses on various aspects of International Politics. 

In June I crossed the Continent and visited the University of Cali- 
fornia and Stanford University, at the last of which I gave a lecture on 
the League of Nations. 

From July 8th to July 29th I was a British Delegate at the Institute 
of Pacific Relations at Honolulu. Delegates were present from the 
United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China, Korea, 
Philippine Islands and Hawaii, and there was a very full and frank 
discussion of the international problems of the Pacific area. I was 
myself especially concerned with those connected with British Policy 
in China, the machinery of peace in the Pacific and international educa- 
tion. As regards the last named, I was able to give an account of progress 
in Wales and to illustrate it with literature sent by the Welsh National 
Council of the League of Nations Union. There were a large number of 
interesting personalities at the Congress and I was able to make many 
important contacts and to acquire much valuable information. 

From Honolulu I went to Japan where I spent most of the month 
of August. This was not a favourable season for a visit, the climate 
being damp and hot, so that many of the most important people were 
at summer resorts. I was, however, able to have interviews with Mr. 
Debuchi, the Permanent Under-Secretary for Foreign Affairs, and other 
members of the Foreign Office (in which I found Mr. Ohta, late student 
of the Department) and to obtain much valuable information from 
them as to Japanese policy in China and elsewhere. I also addressed 
a meeting of the Council of the League of Nations Society, when Prince 
Tokugawa took the chair and a number of prominent Japanese were 
present. 

At the end of August I left for Seoul, where I lunched with a number 
of Korean nationalists and discussed the situation .there, also visiting 
educational establishments and the principal newspaper office. I 
then went to Mukden where I had interviews with a number of residents. 
I also visited the Mukden Medical College and addressed the students 
of the North Eastern University on British Policy. 

From Mukden I went to Peking where I stayed until the end of 
September. I had thus over three weeks' residence there and was able 
to meet a large number of Chinese and Foreigners, including the 
late Chang Tso Lin, his Prime Minister, Pan Fu, and his Foreign 
Minister, Wang Yiutai. I also saw numerous Chinese and Foreign 
Professors, Officials, Publicists and Business Men. I gave several lec- 
tures in Peking and addressed Yenching and Tsing Hua (Indemnity) 
Colleges. 

On October 4th I left for Tientsin where I stayed two days. There 
I met the principal members of the British Concession. I also visited 
Nan Kai University and spoke at the Anglo-Chinese College. 

On October 6th I left by boat and reached Shanghai on October ] Oth, 
calling at Chefoo and Wei-hai-wei. 

At Shanghai I met a large number of Chinese and European Soldiers, 
Officials, Professors and Commerical representatives and obtained a 
large amount of information from them. I delivered a number of addresses 



60 



including three on the " New Europe and the League of Nations " at 
Kuang Hua University and one at the Law School. These lectures 
were well attended and well received. 

I accepted an invitation to visit Nanking where I spent two days. 
There I met many of the Nanking Government including C. C. Wu (Foreign 
Minister), Sun Fo (Minister of Finance) and Wang Chung Hui (Minister 
.of Justice and Judge of the Permanent Court of International Justice). 
With these I had long discussions on Anglo-Chinese relations and on the 
situation in China generally. I also saw General Ching Chien, Com- 
mander of the 6th Army, and other Generals and discussed with them 
the " Nanking Incident " and the military situation in China. I also 
lectured at Ginling College on the League of Nations and saw other 
educational institutions. 

On October 22nd I sailed for Hong-kong which I reached on October 
24th. There I had interviews with the Acting Governor 'and his prin- 
cipal advisers and many Professors and business men, I gave a public 
lecture at the University on the " New Europe," which was well attended. 
I also met the History and Economics Students and discussed various 
problems with them and their Professors. 

I went to Canton for two days staying at Lin Nang University. 
I saw the Commissioner for Foreign Affairs, Chang Feong Lok and 
General Li Shi Sum, the real ruler of Canton and Kwangtung Province, 
who discussed the situation with me very frankly. 

At Lin Nang University I had a meeting with practically all the 
Staff and explained to them the new British Policy in China. I also 
addressed the students of the University on the same subject. 

During my stay in China of two months I gave twenty-two public 
lectures and addresses. I was much impressed by the interest taken 
there on the League of Nations and particularly in its work of reconstruc- 
tion in Europe. 

I left Hongkong on October 29th and sailed via Singapore and 
Penang to Rangoon, which I reached on November 8th. I gave a course 
of four lectures at the University and several other addresses. I also 
met a number of officials and several Burmese politicians and nationalist 
leaders and discussed Burmese and Indian politics with them. 

I reached Calcutta on November 20th and gave six lectures on the 
"European Alliance, 1815-1825 " at the University. I also lectured 
at Presidency College on the '-' New Europe and the League of Nations." 
While at Calcutta I saw many Indian Civil Service Officials, Indian 
politicians and business men and discussed Indian problems with them. 
I also visited Darjeeling. 

On Saturday, December 4th, I left Calcutta for Lucknow visiting 
Benares on the way. At Lucknow I gave three lectures on International 
Politics and also addressed the local branch of the League of Nations 
Union. On December 10th I left for Agra where I saw several Indian 
Civil Service Officials and Educational Officers. 

On December 15th I left for Delhi, where I stayed, except for the 
period December 18th-25th, until January 1st. During that time I 
had exceptional opportunities for meeting members of the Government 
of India and discussing with them various current problems. During 
the week December 18th-25th I visited Lahore and Peshawar. At 



61 



Lahore I met the Governor, Sir Malcolm Hailey, the Hon. Feroze Khan 
Noon, one of his Ministers, and Raja Narendra Nath, Leader of the 
Hindu Party, and others. At Peshawar I saw Sir Norman Bolton, the 
Chief Commissioner, and was allowed to go to the frontier of Afghanistan 
through the Khyber Pass. I also went through tribal territory to Kohat 
and was able to get a glimpse of the problems of the North West Frontier. 

On January 1st I left for Bombay from which I sailed on January 
4th, arriving in London on January 22nd. While I was in India I gave 
in all 18 lectures. I had at one time other Universities on my pro- 
gramme, but found it impossible to give them suitable dates. During 
my two months in Burma and India I was able to obtain a great deal 
of information on the complicated and delicate situation which then 
existed as the result of the appointment of the Statutory Commission. 
I also found far more interest in the League of Nations and European 
problems than I had anticipated. 

Reviewing this year as a whole I feel that I have obtained at least 
a bird's eye view of Far Eastern Problems, particularly on the relations 
of Occident and Orient. I have been pressed to return by various 
Universities, but whether I am able to do so or not, the knowledge 
which I have gained will be of great service to me in my work in Europe 
and America.

The work of the Department was conducted on lines similar to those 
followed in previous years. This year, however, some distribution of 
the work was made possible by the appointment of an Assistant Lecturer 
(Mr. D. J. Jones, B.A.) at the beginning of the session. With his pre- 
vious experience of teaching, Mr. Jones was able to undertake the work 
entrusted to him at all stages, with confidence. 

Intermediate Stage. — With a few exceptions, this class did not appear 
very promising at the beginning of the session, but good progress was 
made during the year and the work done in the sessional examinations 
was, on the whole, of fairly good quality. Two members of the class 
who' were signed up for the Further Test examination, did not quite 



62 



reach the high standard required. The best students in the class were Mi. 
Ivor B. Jenkins, Mr. J. Idris Evans, Mr. Eynon Lloyd, and Mr. B. Trefor 
Thomas. 

Subsidiary Stage. — Like last year's subsidiary class, the class at 
this stage was fairly big, some of the members being first year students 
and others former members of the class. The work done was in the 
main quite satisfactory, and, in spite of the number of failures 
in the June examinations, the class had worked steadily and very satis- 
factorily as a whole. Some first year students showed good promise — 
Mr. B. G. Owens, Miss Eluned Pierce Roberts and Mr. W. D. Williams. 

Final Stage. — The class at this stage was small, but from the begin- 
ning there was not much doubt about the successful completion of the 
course in the case of any of its members, as they had all done well at 
the lower stages and were steady and conscientious students. One 
very promising student had to leave early in the session because of 
indifferent health. The work done by Miss Gwyneth Davies and es- 
pecially by Mr. J. E. Brown was most creditable. If Mr. Brown were 
to take Honours in the subject, I feel sure that he would acquit himself 
well. Six members of this class, who took the First Year Honours 
course in addition to the Final course, will be taking the Second Year 
Honours course next session. 

Honours Stage. — The Honours class this year, as in former years, 
included earnest and hardworking students. They worked steadily and 
intelligently, and although no First Class was granted in June, the 
standard reached by one student, namely, Miss Myfanwy Rees, was 
very high. The two other students who were placed in the First 
Division of the Second Class, Miss Margaret Ellis and Miss Eirlys Evans 
also acquitted themselves very creditably. 

One former member of the Department, Mr. J. T. Owen, who took 
First Class Honours some years ago, obtained the Degree of M.A. in the 
Department of Welsh Literature. 

Two students, Mr. E. D. Jones (Llangeitho) and Mr. T. Hevin 
Williams, who had taken Honours in the Department, have been 
awarded Sir John Williams Studentships. 

The work of the Department at all stages was quite satisfactory. 
It is to be hoped that the promise shown by some first year students 
will be fulfilled at the Honours Stage. 

It is my pleasant duty again this year to thank Professor Gwynn 
Jones for the most valuable assistance which he so willingly gave to 
the Department, especially at the higher stages. I have also to thank 
the new Assistant Lecturer, Mr. D. J. Jones, for his loyal help and his 
great enthusiasm, and for the interest which he has taken in the work 
of the Department generally. He has, in addition, been working at his 
own subject of research. 

During the year the Head of the Department has published articles, 
etc., of a general nature in various journals, contributed a paper on the 
Language of the Laws of Hywel Dda to the Hywel Dda Millenary Volume 
of Aberystwyth Studies, and published a book of Welsh essays. He has 
also devoted some time to the preparation of the Historical Grammar 
of " British " on which he is engaged. 

Some extra-mural work (lectures and classes) was undertaken 
by the Department during the session. Special arrangements were 
also made to give instruction in Welsh to a group of beginners who ex- 
pressed a keen desire to learn the language.

CELTIC RESEARCH AND PALAEOGRAPHY. 

Mr. Timothy Lewis. 

Three students followed the Post-graduate Course in Palaeography. 
One student worked at the history of Welsh Lexicography and two ex- 
students on Welsh Dialects. 

During 1927-28 I published:— 

I, An article in Aberystwyth Studies, 1927, on the Inscrip- 
tion on the Cad van Stone, Towyn. 

II. A complete Bibliography of all the articles and books 
written on Hywel Dda and his laws, and a bibliography 
of all the Welsh and Latin MSS. of the Laws in the Hywel 
Dda Millenary Volume of Aberystwyth Studies. 

III. A series of articles on some aspects of old Welsh Music in 

Y Cerddor Newydd, 1928. 

IV. I have nearly ready for the press a volume containing the 

oldest MS. of Dafydd ab Gwilym with an introduction on 
Welsh metres and literary traditions which I hope will 
open up a new field of research.

In spite of a somewhat uneven standard of initial attainment, the 
work of the students in the Final Stage was generally good. The per- 
formance of Mr. Beynon Davies, who came exceptionally well-prepared, 
deserves special mention. In the Honours stage, Mr. Geraint Dyfnallt 
Owen worked with admirable diligence, obtaining a First Class in the 
June examination, with high commendation from the External Examiner. 
Mr. Owen was also awarded a Sir John Williams Scholarship. 
A member of the Final Class was awarded a travelling scholarship by 
the College to enable him, with students of the Language Department, 
to visit Brittany during the summer vacation. Two members of the 
same class were selected by the Board of Celtic Studies temporarily 
to assist the Dictionary Secretary in the collection of material. Mr. J. 
Gwynfryn Jones, who obtained First Class Honours for brilliant work 
in June, 1927, and who is entering the ministry of the Wesleyan Denomin- 
ation, had the honour of being selected to pursue the special course of 
post-graduate study at Wesley House, Cambridge. Mr. J. T. Owen, now 
of the Aberaeron County School, was awarded the degree of M.A. for an 
enquiry into the life and work of Gwallter Mechain, and Mr. Owen Thomas, 
a former student of Bangor, presented in the Department a dissertation 
on Satire and Contention in mediaeval Welsh, for which he was awarded 
the Degree of M.A.

During the session the Head of the Department continued to act 
as chairman of the local group engaged in translating portions of the 
New Testament under the scheme of the Theological section of the Guild 
of Graduates. Publications issued during the Session: —

The work done at the different stages reached a satisfactory standard 
on the whole. It was best at the higher stages; most of the students 
have no knowledge of Philosophy when they enter, and, speaking generally, 
the higher the stage attained by the student, the better his results are. 

Post-graduate Work - -The quality of the work at this stage was 
excellent. D. Gwilym James, B.A., brought his studentship to a very 
successful close. He spent the last year in University College, London, 
where he continued his study of secondary qualities. He was awarded 
for his Dissertation the degree of M.A. with distinction, and later he 
was recommended by the Academic Board for a University Fellowship. 
Mr. James had previously obtained first class in the departments of English 
and Philosophy. Trefor Thornley Jones, B.A., who held a one-year 
University studentship, did very creditable work during the session, 
including a number of essays, carefully written and planned, upon the 
metaphysical implications of the postulates of morality. I believe Mr 
Jones has made very promising start in his study of a very interest- 
ing and important problem. 

Honours Class. — The Honours Class began with five students, 
but one withdrew at the end of the first term. Miss Edith Morris and 
Miss Winifred Mary Owen did exceptionally good work. Their treat- 
ment of questions showed extensive reading and power of independent 
thinking. Miss Morris obtained a first class, and Miss Owen a first 
division in the second class. Messrs. Norman Ellis and Stephen George, 
who worked steadily during the year under less favourable conditions, 
obtained a second division in the second class. 

The Final Class. The members of the Final Class showed most 
gratifying interest in the subject and desire for thoroughness in their 
study of it. Of the 22 students who attended the class, four withdrew 
from examination, two failed, and the rest passed with very creditable 
papers in the majority of cases. The work of the following students 
deserved special mention : — Miss Bridget Downing, Idris Nolan Evans, 
W. G. Pardey, and J. J. Absalom Thomas. The answers were frequently 
of an honours standard. 

The Ordinary Class. — The work at the subsidiary stage was less 
distinguished than at the final stage, and showed less acquaintance 
with the prescribed texts. Twenty-nine students presented them- 
selves for examination ; of these five failed to satisfy the examiner. 
The following students deserve special mention for the high quality of 
their work : — Miss Margaret E. Gray, Miss Lilian M. Edwards, Miss 
Elizabeth M. Jenkins, Randall Lloyd and Miss Conna M. J. Thomas. 

The Intermediate Class. — This class, as usual, contained students 
of very different powers and attainments, and in estimating the results 
allowance must be made for the fact that nearly all the members of 
the class are entirely new to the subject. The majority of the class suc- 
ceeded in attaining an intelligent knowledge of the main topics dealt with, 
both in Logic and in Psychology. The class contained about 70 students. 
Seventeen failed to satisfy the examiners. The Further Test Class 
studied Fcussel's Problem of Metaphysics. The four students who passed 
the examination showed much ability and real interest in philosophical 
problems. 

General. — Dr. George Green, of the Department of Education, gave a 
short course of lectures to the Honours students on some modern develop- 
ments in Psychology. I greatly appreciate the action of the Council 
and the courtesy of the Department of Education which have made 
this assistance possible.

I much regret that it is impossible with a staff of only two 
teachers for all stages of the work to give adequate attention to 
students doing post-graduate work. The development of this part of the 
work is nevertheless, very gratifying. The Philosophical Society met two 
or three times each term and several of its meetings were excellent. On 
one occasion the Theological Society of the Theological College and the 
Philosophical Society joined forces and held a very successful joint meet- 
ing. 

I desire to congratulate two former honours students of the Depart- 
ment upon distinctions conferred upon them — Mr. Tom Owen, B.A., 
H.M.I., who now resides in Aberystwyth, upon his appointment as 
Inspector of Schools in charge of Cardiganshire, and a part of Pem- 
brokeshire ; and the Rev. Griffith Rees, M.A., upon his appoint- 
ment to the important pastorate of the Princess Road Presbyterian 
Church, Liverpool. 

The new volume of Aberystwyth Studies contains an article on " The 
Philosophy of Giovanni Gentile," by Miss Valmai Evans, M.A., and 
the first number of the new series of Y Great contains an article on 
" Beth yw Ffilosoffi," by Dr. Dan Davies. During the last winter, 
Professor Jenkyn Jones conducted a tutorial class in Psychology at Aber- 
aeron and Dr. Dan Davies conducted a similar class at Llanybyther. 

In conclusion, I have much pleasure in acknowledging the loyal 
and efficient services of my assistant, Dr. Dan Davies, and the kindness 
and valuable help of Dr. George Green.

Mrs. Mary Noelle Davies obtained the Ph.D. degree for a thesis on 
" Grundtvig and the Folk High School Movement in Denmark," 
an excellent piece of work and a substantial contribution to educational 
history. 

The Department has suffered a very serious loss in the death of Mr. 
D. J. Saer, Headmaster of the Alexandra Road Boys' Council School. 
It is impossible to acknowledge adequately the innumerable ways in which 
he has helped us as a Head Teacher of the Practising Schools, 
as a teacher in the department, and as an adviser and friend of students and 
staff. Of late years he has obtained world-wide notice as a pioneer in the 
scientific study of bilingualism and at the time of his death the Welsh 
Outlook was publishing an article by him on the psychology of bilingualism. 
He was also mainly responsible for the conduct of the intelligence tests 
given to all candidates for entrance scholarships and to all students of 
the Training Department each session. There can be very few, if any, 
other elementary schoolmasters whose scientific educational work has 
been of such merit as to receive publication in the British Journal of 
Psychology. 

The departure of Major Lloyd Morgan from the Headship of the 
Intermediate School at Aberystwyth takes away from us one who has 
been a source of great strength in Secondary School practising work. 
His personality, his capacity, and his attitude to his work have been 
an inspiration especially to our most serious students. 

Miss Dorothy E. Roberts has completed three years as representa- 
tive of the non-professorial staff on the Senate. She is succeeded by 
Mr. John Hughes. Mr. Hughes has resigned his position as representa- 
tive of the non-professorial staff on the Court of Governors of the College 
and is followed by Dr. Gwenan Jones. Mr. Hughes remains as a represen- 
tative of the Cardiganshire Elementary Head Teachers. Dr. Gwenan 
Jones and Mr. Hughes also represent the Guild of Graduates on the 
University Court. 

We shall miss greatly the help given to us in recent years by Miss 
Woodward who has resigned from the Latin Department. Miss Wood- 
ward has given us ungrudging assistance in lecturing on the teaching 
of classics and in practising school supervision. 

The First International Conference on Bilingualism, Luxem- 
bourg, 1928. 

(Convened jointly by Professor Pierre Bo vet, Geneva, and Mr. 
John Hughes, Aberystwyth.) 

The First International Conference on Bilingualism (Luxembourg, 
April 2nd — 5th, 1928), marks an important step forward in the discussion 
of biiingualism. It may with justice be claimed that a large proportion 
of the impetus to the movement originated from Aberystwyth. 

The publication of the work on " The Bilingual Problem " (by Messrs. 
D. J. Saer, Frank Smith and John Hughes) attracted the attention of 
scholars on the Continent interested in the problem of bilingualism, and in 
particular that of Professor Pierre Bovet, of Geneva, Director of the 
Bureau International d'Education. Professor Bovet, while on a visit 
to Gregynog in connection with the Advisory Education Committee 
of the Welsh League of Nations Union, came to Aberystwyth, lectured to 
the students of the Training Department, and conferred with members 
of the staff of the Department of Education. 



68 



In addition, the College Travelling Scholarship Scheme made possible 
certain international contacts which led up to the conference. 

The lecture and library facilities of the College Department of Inter- 
national Politics formed another contributory factor. 

The project of a conference on Bilingualism actually originated in a 
suggestion made by Mr. John Hughes in a letter to the Director of the 
Bureau International d' Education. The suggestion was very cordially 
received in view of the many questions on the subject that had reached 
the Bureau. 

In a circular issued by the Secretary-General of the Bureau, Professor 
Bovet makes the following reference to the Aberystwyth investigations : — 

" The extensive investigation that MM. Saer, Smith and Hughes 
have pursued in Wales is from many points of view a model. It shows 
that the problem lends itself to methodical treatment and that it can 
lead to positive conclusions. We have had the good fortune to obtain 
for our scheme the willing and competent collaboration of these scholars 
from Wales, and the programme which we now submit to you has been 
drawn up in consultation with Mr. John Hughes, Lecturer at the Univer- 
sity College of Wales, Aberystwyth." 

The aim of the Conference was to consider in a dispassionate and 
scientific atmosphere the difficult questions involved in the study of 
bilingualism. The occasion attracted a good gathering of scholars from 
various bilingual lands. The efforts to approach the problem in a scientific 
temper was successful. 

The International Institute of Intellectual Co-operation was re- 
presented by Professor Ladislas Folkierski of Cracow, now Chief of the 
Section of Historical and Social Science at Paris. 

The deliberations were largely based on the work begun in Wales by 
Mr. D. J. Saer. Mr. Saer's own paper was read by his daughter, Miss 
Hywela Saer. Papers were also read by Professor Frank Smith and Mr. 
John Hughes, as well as by various representatives of bilingual lands. 

As a result of the Conference, an International Research Commission 
is to promote inquiry into the bilingual problem in the various countries 
interested. Professor Ovide Decroly of Brussels, will preside over 
the Commission, and the support of the International Institute of Intellec- 
tual Co-operation and of the Bureau International d'Education is assured. 
The University College of Wales was represented at the Conference by 
Dr. Gwenan Jones, Miss H. Saer and Mr. John Hughes.

Dr. Gwenan Jones: — 

During the session students in the fourth year who had made a special 
study of Welsh formed themselves into a group and began the making of 
Welsh books for schools. A beginning has been made with the following : — 

Collection of Welsh Letters. 
Abridgment of Drych y Prif Oesoedd. 
Translations of Saga from Norse and Breton. 
Class anthologies of poetry from journals and existing collec- 
tions. (Begun some years ago.) 

Major H. F, Stimson : — 

(1) " Physical Education in the Training Departments of Univer- 

sity Colleges." — Journal of the National Association of 
Organisers of Physical Education. 

(2) Physical Education in Wales. Welsh Secondary Schools Review. 

ARTS AND CRAFTS. 

Mr. Dan. R. Jones. 

The number of students who pursued courses in Art and Craft during 
Session 1927-28 was 1]0, their allocation being as follows: — 

From the Training Department . . . . . . 97 

Art and Crafts — Full Time . . . . . . -.11 

Art and Crafts — Part Time . . . . ► . . . 2 

In addition to the number of students from the Training Department 
who satisfied the requirements of the Board of Education, we record the 
following successes : — 

Diploma in Crafts : Miss Millicent Grindley, Miss C. O. Jones. 

Art Teachers' Certificate (Society of Art Masters) : Richard 
R. Thomas (with ]st Class in one subject), David H. Thomas, 
Gwyneth M. Lewis, James E. S. Orrin (with 1st Class in 
one subject), Arthur W. Lewis (with 1st Class in one subject), 
Robert W. Roberts (with 1st Class in one subject), Ivy K. Iron, 
Gwenva Cowley. 

National Eisteddfod of Wales, Treorchy : Miss Eirlys Morgan, 
1st Prize Leather work, original design (14 competitors). 

On February 21th Mr. Hooper, H.M.I., paid a visit to the College in 
connection with the survey of the Teaching of Art in Wales. 

Miss Eirlys Morgan was granted a travelling scholarship to enable 
her to visit Paris. Miss Gwen Davies has completed the illustrations for 
a book by Sir Oliver Lodge, which will be published shortly. 

The address presented to Sir Walford Davies was made mainly in 
the Department. The approach Hall and Corridor have been improved 
by the addition of four exhibition cases in which will be displayed 
students' work, pottery, books, etc. 

The success and development of this department is being 
severely handicapped through lack of proper accommodation ; such 
crafts as metal work and pottery are being held back for the same reason. 
A pottery kiln, purchased last August (1927) has not yet been fixed. 
The lighting of the main Art room is very deficient. Furthermore 
the rooms are too small to accommodate the large classes which have 
to be provided for. It is greatly to be desired that the College take a 
more sympathetic interest in the needs of the dozen full-time Art and 
Craft students who pursue their studies in the department. It would 
be a great loss to the College were these students to drift away. Their 
presence here is neither realised nor recognised. •

MUSIC. 

Professor David de Lloyd. 

During the past session the number of students pursuing the Inter- 
mediate courses in Music showed an increase on previous years, eight 
students taking this stage — -six B.A. and two B.Mus. Of the former 
one student, an aspirant for Honours in another Department, abandoned 
the course early in the Session. 

In the June examinations, five of the Arts and one of the Music 
students passed their examinations. 

All the Subsidiary candidates — two B.Mus. and three B.A. — were 
also successful in their sessionals, one of the Arts students submitting 
work of such a standard that she would do well to consider the advis- 
ability of pursuing the B.Mus. course after completing her Arts degree. 

Of the Final students, two of the three candidates who sat the 
June examinations satisfied the examiners, and one of the B.Mus. passed 
the necessary paper work in Harmony, Counterpoint, Fugue, Scoring, 
Form and Composition. 

The number of Diploma students (T.T.C.) enrolled at the beginning 
of the Session was seven First Year and eight Second Year. Several 
of the First Year students withdrew, three receiving appointments in 
the course of the first term. Although the work of the remaining First 
Year students in their Sessionals was moderately good, that of the six 
Second Year students did not reach the required standard in English and 
History. All the Diploma students are non-Matriculants and the task of 
reaching the Intermediate stage in those subjects, even after a period 
of two or three years, is rather beyond the ability of individuals who in 
several cases have left school some years before entering upon a College 
Diploma Course. The measure of success hitherto attained by past 
students in this critical part of their course is to be attributed entirely 
to the unsparing efforts of Mr. Saer, whose death has deprived the 
diploma students of their staunchest friend. 

Twenty students took Violin (about half of whom were Normals), 
fourteen piano (five Normals), and ten singing (six Normals). 

Students who intend entering the teaching profession have not even 
yet taken full advantage of the facilities offered by the Department of 
Music for the study of an instrument ; this is particularly so in the case 
of students-in-training, to whom a special fee concession is granted in 
view of the growing importance of this branch of study in the school 
curriculum. 

The membership of the College Choral Society showed an 
improvement this session. While numerical strength is no criterion 
of efficiency yet in a college having several hundreds of students on 
its register, the membership should be much more. 

During the session the Society performed at the end of the first 
term Dale's " Before the paling of the stars " ; Vaughan Williams' " Fan- 
tasia on Christmas Carols " ; and selected numbers from Bach's " Christmas 
Oratorio." The second term was fully occupied in preparing Elgar's 
" Dream of Gerontius " for the annual musical festival which, this year, 
took place early in the third term. The change of date was made to 
suit the convenience of students and staff members generally, whose 
co-operation in a venture which none of the other constituent colleges has 
so far undertaken, is, or should be, a matter of duty and pride to the 
College. 

The Festival programmes included the following items : "Carneval " 
Overture (Dvorak) ; Violin Concerto in D. (Brahms) — solo violinist, Miss 
Evelyn Cooke ; " William Tell " Overture (Rossini) ; " Eroica " Sym- 
phony (Beethoven); "Siegfried Idyll" (Wagner); " Rosamunde" 



72 



Overture (Schubert) ; " Leonora No. 3 " Overture (Beethoven) ; " On 
the Steppes of Central Asia " (Borodin) ; Piano Concerto in A Minor 
(Greig) — solo piano, Mr. Charles Clements ; " The Dream of Gerontius " 
(Elgar). 

All the instrumental solo work and the conducting were done by 
the staff members of the Music Department. 

The Orchestral practices, the series of College " Thursday " Concerts, 
Friday " At Homes " and the " Chamber Music Hour " continue to provide 
our students with unique opportunities for hearing and studying standard 
classical works under conditions which compare favourably with those 
offered by establishments that confine themselves entirely to musical 
work. 

As in past sessions, a course of lectures on Welsh Music was delivered 
to the students of the Department by Dr. Lloyd Williams whose book on 
" The History of Welsh Music," now nearing completion, is eagerly 
awaited. 

Mrs. Arthur Williams' resignation, which takes effect at the close 
of the session ( 1 927-28) is keenly regretted by students and staff-members, 
all of whom wish her a speedy and complete recovery of health. Her 
resignation brings to a close a period of ten years' devoted service to 
College, Musical Club, and Council of Music. Her unrivalled technical 
skill and her artistic interpretation of Chamber Music have been the 
means of inculcating an enduring appreciation of works hitherto regarded 
as beyond the capacity of the " ordinary listener." 

The successful conduct of affairs in connection with a department 
which has so many ramifications requires the co-operation of colleagues 
and volunteers outside the Department, one of whom deserves special 
mention for his work in connection with the Musical Club — Dr. A. B. 
Thomas. To all, I wish to express my deep appreciation of services 
loyally rendered. 

LAW. 

Professor T. A. Levi. 

1. Number of Students. The total number of law students during

The Report of Mr. Stanley J. Bailey, who has done excellent and 
successful work at Rhyl, is annexed. 

2. Success of Students. — Among the successes which are to be recorded 
this session, we may mention the following : — 

Vyrnwy John Lewis, Ll.B., gained the Barstow Law Scholar- 
ship at the Bar. 

D. Seaborne Davies, Li.B., gained the MacMahon Law 
Studentship at St. John's College, Cambridge. 

Dorothy Lloyd Owen, LIB., obtained Honours at the Law 
Tripos at Girton College, Cambridge. 

T. Ellis Lewis, Ll.B., Lecturer in Law, obtained the degree 
of Ph.D. at Cambridge, for a thesis on " Judicial Precedent," 
which has earned very high commendation by the Cam- 
bridge Faculty of Law. 

John Cherry, B.A., Lecturer in Law, obtained First Class 
Honours at the Final Examination for Call to the Bar. 

R. Moelwyn Hughes, Ll.B., was appointed to a lectureship 
under the Law Society. 

Percy Dale Wadsworth and William Evan Bufton obtained 
Second Class Honours (Division I.) at the Ll.B. Examina- 
tion of the University of Wales, and the Samuel Evans Prize 
was divided between them. 

One of the students, Alfred Bate, attending our courses of 
lectures at the North Wales Centre obtained the second 
place in First Class Honours at the Law Society's Final 
examination. 

3. Appointment of Lecturer. — We regret to have to announce that Mr. 
John Cherry, B.A., was compelled to tender his resignation at the 
end of the session in order to assist his father, Sir Benjamin Cherry, 
in conveyancing practice. Mr. Cherry was with us for two years, 
and during that time did much valuable work in Property Law, 
especially in connection with the Honours Classes. A presenta- 
tion was made to him in the Summer Term in grateful recogni- 
tion of his assistance in every branch of the work. His 
departure is very sincerely - regretted both by staff and students. 
Many applications were received for appointment as his suc- 
cessor. The Committee has recommended to the Council the appoint- 
ment of Mr. R. A. Wing, B.A., Ll.B., Scholar of Trinity Hall, Cambridge, 
who obtained First Class Honours both at the Cambridge Law Tripos 
and at the Cambridge Ll.B. Examination, and is also highly com- 
mended by the Regius Professor of Civil Law for research work in Roman 
Law. During the session Dr. T. Ellis Lewis was appointed for three 
years a member of the Academic Board and placed on the permanent 
staff of the College, in recognition of his valuable work in the Law Lecture- 
ship. 

4. Celebration of Hywel Dda Millenary. — The principal event of 
the session, as far as the Law Department was concerned, was the national 
celebration of the millenary of Hywel Dda, the great law-giver of Wales, 
and of the national Code of Law. On behalf of the Faculty of Law, 
the Professor of English Law took part in the University Celebration at 
Carmarthen ; in the national celebration at Aberystwyth on May 9th, 
when the Right Honourable D. Lloyd George, M.P., attended and delivered 
an address ; and in the celebration at Whitland on May 1 6th, the site of 
the original assembly at Ty Gwyn which codified the Laws of Wales. 



74 



In connection with the celebration, also, the Professor of English 
Law contributed to " Aberystwyth Studies " an article on " The Laws of 
Hywel Dda in the light of Roman and Early English Law." A further 
article on the subject was published in
